Tuesday night will be the first time Joe Lolley has ever hoped Aston Villa will lose as his Huddersfield Town side prepares to face the relegated giant for the first time in 29 years.
Despite being part of Birmingham City's academy until the age of 16 and his mother, Lynn, being a Blues season-ticket holder, Lolley has supported Villa since the age of six when his dad, Martin, introduced him to the club.
Lolley used to sit in Villa Park's famous Holte End to watch his side and he can't wait to get out on to the pitch in Birmingham.
"I'm so excited," the Town winger told the Birmingham Mail.

"It's going to be a very surreal feeling for me.
"I've followed the club all my life so if I play, or come on from the bench, or even if it's just looking up from the pitch at the Holte End where I used to sit, it will be massive for me.
"I've never even been on the Villa Park pitch so you can imagine how pleased I was when I saw the game was so early in the season."
Although Lolley supports the claret and blue club, he has insisted when he gets on the pitch he will do everything in his power to secure the points for the Terriers.
Birmingham has been a good hunting ground for Lolley in the past, bagging a goal in both of his previous visits to St Andrew's sparking wild celebrations.
"First and foremost, I'm a Huddersfield player and that's the most important thing for me," he said.
"For the first time in my life, I really do hope Villa lose!
"I won't be giving it to the crowd like I did at Blues, though.
"My first Villa game was Wimbledon at home.
"I remember players like Alan Thompson, Paul Merson, that sort of era.
"I rarely missed a game but obviously playing football every weekend came first."
The midfielder, who scored 88 goals in 83 matches for Littleton FC from 2011 to 2013 before heading to Kidderminster Harriers, went on to talk about the Terriers and life under boss David Wagner.
"We're an unknown quantity at the moment in this division because not many people know what the manager is all about," he said.
"We've built a good squad and any team that comes to watch us play are impressed with the way play and how we defend and how quick we are on the break.
"I think as the season goes on, teams will start to take notice of us and hopefully we'll be still at the top of the table.
WATCH: "We must find solutions to the questions Villa ask"
"The manager has a phrase that he likes.
"He says: 'there is no limit' and he's right.
"We just want to see where we can go. We aim to win every game.
"Hopefully we can keep going because we've had a great start."
