Villa go into the match as underdogs, as Fulham have been the form team in the Championship over the second part of the season.

Villa, though, do have a great deal of experience - which could bring the best out of their players on the big occasion.

The likes of John Terry, Mile Jedinak and Alan Hutton should not feel fazed by playing on such a pressurised occasion, and that could give them an advantage.

Villa got to the final by beating Middlesbrough, while Fulham knocked out Derby County.
