The Championship encounter had been moved to 5.30pm on that day for Sky Sports coverage but a change in the broadcaster's schedule has seen the kick-off moved again, to 12.30pm.

Steve Bruce has guided the Villains firmly into promotion contention, with Villa's squad featuring Norwich old boys Robert Snodgrass, Lewis Grabban, Mark Bunn and former loan signing Henri Lansbury.

The Canaries' slipped to a 4-2 defeat at Villa Park earlier this season, with Josh Murphy and Nelson Oliveira on target for Daniel Farke's side.

City have featured six times in live television coverage this campaign, most recently the thrilling 1-1 derby comeback against Ipswich Town.
