Ashley Young believes that Villa must be on their toes on Saturday and make sure David Bentley has a bad game.
Young knows Bentley from the England u-21 setup and knows quality when he sees it, however I think Blackburn will be more worried about our youngsters, than we will be of theirs.
Speaking on the official site, Young was full of praise for Bentley's contribution this season:
'Bentley is definitely a danger man on Saturday because he has terrific ability, they've got good players all round but Bentley is a stand-out. He is impressive because he can play in a range of positions - down the right, left and just behind the front man.
'His delivery from set-pieces is excellent too and he is a definite threat.
'But we need to concentrate on our own form and our own performance and hopefully the result should take care of itself.'
Young knows Villa could be in for a thriller match again given our 4-0 victory earlier in the season, another result like that would certainly wipe away any disappointment from drawing at Liverpool.
'The goal against Blackburn was my best of the season - although I haven't scored as many as I would have liked.
'That was a good victory and let's hope history repeats itself on Saturday.
'Ewood Park is a difficult venue so we were delighted with the final scoreline. It was a good performance from everyone.
'We go fourth if we win at the weekend. There's no question we wanted a European place at the start of the season so to be where we are - and possibly where we could be on Saturday evening - is a terrific achievement.
'That's a credit to the boys and how well they've done this season.'
