Comments:

Due to a significant outbreak of COVID-19 leading to the closure of their Bodymoor Heath training centre, the first team squad and members of the senior coaching staff were not involved in this game. In the absence of manager Dean Smith, Under-23 coach Mark Delaney took charge of the inexperienced Villa team.
