The Scotsman leads his men into the home fixture on the back of a 1-0 defeat against Fulham last weekend, which has placed the Midlands outfit just one point above the relegation zone in the Premier League table.
Meanwhile, Norwich sit just just two spots above Villa in the table following a difficult start to the season under new manager Chris Hughton but last weekend's 1-0 win over Arsenal is likely to boost the players' confidence as they head to Villa Park.
Aston Villa: WLDLL
