Albrighton believes bagging the crucial decider would be the pinnacle for him - as a Villa player and, more importantly, a Villa fan.
He told Villa's website: "Scoring the winner would be the perfect scenario - whether it will happen I will wait and see.
"But I'd take a John Carew tap-in any day though.
"It's the stuff that dreams are made of. As a Villa fan and a Villa player, that's probably the pinnacle of what you can do - to score the winner at St Andrew's against Blues.
"There's nothing to top that in the eyes of the fans. That would be unbelievable. But what we need is three points to move us away from the relegation scrap."
