Aston Villa vs Birmingham City Live
Aston Villa will hold a minute’s silence before their derby with Birmingham City on Sunday in honour of their late defender Ugo Ehiogu.The former England international passed away in the early hours of Friday following a cardiac arrest while at Tottenham’s Training Centre, where he is a coach for the under-23s.A fan favourite with Villa, Ehiogu spent nine years with the club, winning the League Cup twice in 1994 and 1996.”There’ll be a minutes applause before Sunday’s game and players will wear black armbands in memory of Ugo Ehiogu,” read a BBC WM Sport tweet.
Harry Redknapp can take the first step towards receiving a reported £250,000 bonus for saving Birmingham City from relegation by claiming a valuable point from the Second City derby.
The 70-year-old former West Ham and Tottenham manager has been brought in for the last three matches of the season to keep the Blues up after they went into freefall under Gianfranco Zola.The rot set in after Birmingham’s Hong Kong-based owners sacked Gary Rowett in December and brought in Zola, who in the course of his four months in charge turned the club from being play-off contenders to relegation candidates and resigned after Monday’s loss to Burton Albion.
Going into the weekend three points and two places above the drop zone, Redknapp has arrived insisting he will not be paid a salary by Birmingham, merely a bonus – reported to be £250,000 – if he keeps them in the Championship.
