No two ways about it, Villa have to win this for the fans. In recent years we have put up too many lack lustre performances against lower league sides and although no club should think it is their right to get victory, the fans do have a right to expect better than what we served up against Sheffield United, Burnley and more recently Doncaster. Villa have a proud history of seven FA Cup wins and need to erase last years 3-1 exit to the Blades. So no excuses will be accepted, just a win!

Former Villa goalie Boaz Myhill says: 'I've no bitterness against Villa but the minute you don't think you've a point to prove, you might as well throw your boots in the bin. I'd love to prove a point to their manager but I want to show our manager I'm a good player every single week.'
Former Villan Boaz Myhill will be playing his 100th game for Hull. Striker Craig Fagan is back in contention, but it appears Hull have as many long term injury victims as Villa do with Burgess, Ashbee, McPhee, Thelwell, Coles and Edge all out.
To see what we have missed out on in selling the highly rated goalie. Oh, and Nick Barmby can be a handful on his day as well!
Baros is out due to a one match suspension having picked up his fifth yellow card of the season and Phillips is still out with an ankle problem, so it seems likely that O'Leary will start with Angel and Moore up front. Sorenson looks to have shaken his virus but the news might not be so good for Wilfred Bouma who is struggling to be fit. Reports today suggest Leeds won't allow on loan midfielder Eirik Bakke to play unless Villa agree a permanent deal. Jumper Jumper is away on African Nations Cup duty which is no doubt a massive loss to us! (from - depending on late fitness news!): Sorensen, Hughes, Delaney, Mellberg, Barry, Samuel, Milner, Hendrie, Davis, McCann, Gardner, Whittingham, Angel, Moore, Taylor, De la Cruz.
We need goals, simple as that, and he needs to supply or score them in partnership with young Luke Moore.

Mystic Mug says Hull couldn't have chosen a worse time to play us and although the game won't be easy, he sees an away win for Villa. 2-1.
