ALBION supporters will not be able to access the area directly behind the Smethwick End’s away section on Friday evening.
The walkway to the rear of A Block, including the Middlemore Road ramp, can be used only by Aston Villa fans in possession of a match ticket.
Baggies fans who normally use this route to access and exit the stadium are asked to make alternative arrangements.
Supporters are also advised, with the game now a complete sell-out, to leave for The Hawthorns in good time. Heavy traffic is expected around the stadium this Friday evening.
