CONFIRMED: Aston Villa line-up v Chesterfield

Here's the starting side for Aston Villa against Chesterfield this evening, kick-off at 19:30 GMT.

Aston Villa: Guzan, Lowton, Herd, Donacien, Bennett, Gardner, Johnson, Carruthers, Burke, Tonev, Robinson

Aston Villa will be looking to maintain a 100% win rate in pre-season when they take on Chesterfield this evening.

Villa have been close to perfect through their first three pre-season games scoring six goals and conceding just one so far.

Away from the pitch manager Paul Lambert continues to work on transfers to improve the squad ahead of the new Premier League season, as the side look to break into the top half of the table.

It’s a good opportunity for younger and fringe players to impress the Villa boss this evening, putting him under pressure ahead of that first game of the season away at Stoke City.

Villa have three more pre-season games following this fixture against Groningen, Walsall and Parma, which all guarantee tough work outs.

Should Villa manage to keep their pre-season winning streak going, it will give them confidence and momentum heading into the Premier League season.
