Aston Villa head into their FA Cup encounter with Peterborough full of confidence after wins against Middlesbrough and Bristol City either side of the New Year.
Aston Villa started the their Championship campaign poorly as they looked to float around in the bottom half of the table.
However, an inspired Steve Bruce side have managed to claw their way back into promotion contention as they now sit comfortably in a 5th placed play-off spot.
In their last outing against automatic promotion contenders Bristol City, Steve Bruce’s side inflicted the heaviest defeat on the Robins this season, after goals from Scott Hogan, Robert Snodgrass (2), Birkir Bjarnason and Conor Hourihane made it a 5-0 rout.
Now, looking to improve on this in their next encounter against a tricky Peterborough side that currently sit just outside the play-off places in League One, they’ll be hoping they can continue on this fine run as they look to book a place in the next-round.
Nevertheless, prior to tomorrow’s fixture at Villa Park. Aston Villa’s Twitter account (@AVFCOfficial) took to posting a pre-match interview that involved winger Robert Snodgrass speaking on their recent performances.

West Ham’s loss is our gain as far as I’m concerned. Top pro. Keep it going Snoddy!
