BURTON Albion host Aston Villa for the first time in a competitive fixture tomorrow as Nigel Clough's men look to build on their impressive performance in the narrow defeat to Newcastle on Wednesday.

The Brewers were undone by a curling effort from Matt Ritchie in the second half, but that was the only goal that separated the two sides.

Now the attention turns to tomorrow's game against in-form Aston Villa who were lucky to beat the Brewers in the reverse fixture at Villa Park.

Midfielder Luke Murphy has played a key part in Albion's upturn in form since his January arrival and says the Brewers are targeting maximum points against the Villans: "We're looking at that game to get all three points.

"We're at home so we need to take the game to them.

"Like Newcastle they have got Premier League players as well but I'm sure if we make it hard for them and play our football at the same time they won't enjoy coming to the Pirelli Stadium."
