West Midlands Police have advised Aston Villa fans wanting a pre-match drink on Saturday to do so in Birmingham city centre before travelling to Wolverhampton.
Villa make the short trip to Molienux to face Wolves in a 5:30pm kick-off.
Wth only one pub in Wolverhampton allowing entry to away fans, the Blue Brick which is situated at the back of the train station, Villa supporters have been advised to stay in Birmingham and then catch the train to the match.
All other pubs in Wolverhampton will have door staff on.
Police also advise fans that there is no direct tram service to Wolverhampton city centre due to line refurbishment.
The claret and blues, who now sit seventh after a winning September, head across the region to meet second-placed Wolves in the first West Midlands derby of the season.
Last term, Joe Mason's early goal earned all three points for Wolves two days after the passing of Graham Taylor, a former manager of both clubs.
Bruce won't make the same mistake again
Steve Bruce has a big decision to make this weekend.
How does he keep the winning run going?
The boss has FIVE injury worries ahead of Saturday’s clash with Wolves and late checks will be made on Mile Jedinak, Andre Green, Keinan Davis, Henri Lansbury and Jack Grealish before taking off to Molineux.
Green (hamstring) and Grealish (damaged kidney) are unlikely to make it but Bruce is hopeful on Jedinak (groin) Davis (hip) and Lansbury (knee).
To make matters worse, Villa are without Neil Taylor who starts a three-game ban following his sending-off against Bolton Wanderers last time out.
And that’s without even considering the returning international stars.
“As with any international break, you just hope they all return unscathed,” said Bruce.
“I’m often sat in front of the TV switching between the channels to see how they’re all getting on but you obviously can’t keep an eye on them all.”
Bruce will know that he’ll have to lift the likes of James Chester and Robert Snodgrass, though, as both Wales and Scotland failed to qualify for the World Cup.
However, Glenn Whelan, Ahmed Elmohamady and Birkir Bjarnason will return with a spring in their step after making it to next summer’s tournament in Russia with their respective nations.
The boss named an unchanged side for the last four outings but with suspensions and injuries to deal with he will have to switch it up.
"Everyone has their idea on what team to pick but in the end it's down to me," he said about team selection opinions recently.
"So it's important I get it right!"
Will he learn from his mistakes from last time out then?
Following a 0-0 draw with Brentford after the last international break, Bruce was left cursing his decision to start Green, Davis and Josh Onomah after their England exertions.
He replaced them all after the break with fresh substitutes but it was too late and Villa ended up getting lucky by scraping a point.
"I'm kicking myself because we looked jaded and it was my decision on the starting line-up," he said at the time.
"I'm frustrated, disappointed. I'm not making excuses, I should have done better."
