ASTON VILLA 2-0 BIRMINGHAM
FT: It was a deserved result for Villa in the end as they
were the more progressive in the second-half and took their goals extremely
well, while Birmingham failed to produce anything of note after the break.
90+4: RED! One of the stupidest red cards you'll see as Ndoye and Jedinak clash before Terry takes the Birmingham man by the scruff of the net, resulting in Ndoye being sent off.
90+1: Four minutes added on.
87: CHANCE! Jenkinson fails to clear the ball and it ends up with Snodgrass on the edge of the area but he drags an effort wide with his weaker left foot.
84: SUB! Grealish is getting a standing ovation from the home supporters at Villa Park as he heads off the pitch. Bjarnason replaces him.
GOAL! ASTON VILLA 2-0 BIRMINGHAM (Hourihane, 81)
What a stunner from the midfielder! Dean headed the ball out of the box but straight to Hourihane who chested it down and allowed it to bounce before smashing the ball up and over Stockdale from 20 yards.
ASTON VILLA 1-0 BIRMINGHAM
78: SUB! It's Villa's turn to make a sub as Hogan is replaced by Grabban.
76: SUB! Jota is on for Maghoma as Birmingham switch things up.
WATCH: ADOMAH NETS OPENER
64: Grealish sends Adomah through but his cross doesn't find Hogan diving in at the front post and instead nestles into the arms of Stockdale.
62: YELLOW! Grealish takes another victim as his quick feet bamboozle Dean who takes him down near the byline, with his reward being a caution.
GOAL! ASTON VILLA 1-0 BIRMINGHAM (Adomah, 60)
Grealish holds up the ball waiting to making his move towards the box, he eventually cuts in and plays the pass into Adomah who shifts it onto his right and drives his shot into the bottom corner from 18 yards.
ASTON VILLA 0-0 BIRMINGHAM
57: YELLOW! Ndoye goes into the book for putting a foot in on Grealish and failing to get the ball off the marauding Villa man.
56: Colin is penalised for a foul on Hogan after Johnstone launched the ball up to the striker, who received the pass, spun but was quickly taken down by the defender.
54: Chester is given a talking to by the referee after leaving a bit on Davis when challenging for a header.
52: Hutton sends in a dangerous cross for Hogan to challenge for, Birmingham fail to clear it first time and then the defender smashes the ball into the Villa striker before scrambling it clear.
50: Colin swings in a cross from the left but Terry reads it well and heads it a long way down the pitch.
46: BAR! Snodgrass sends in a deep cross to the back post where Terry is waiting, he heads the ball towards the top corner but Dean gets back on the line and heads it onto his own bar!
KO: Here we go again! No changes for either side.
HERE THEY COME
The players are back out on the pitch. Can we expect a more composed half?
NOT MANY CHANCES
There's not been a great amount happening in front of goal so far, can we expect better in the second-half?

WATCH: GALLAGHER HITS POST
HT: It's been a frenetic half at Villa Park with the hosts enjoying the majority of possession but they've struggled to create many great chances. In fact, Birmingham have enjoyed the best opportunity but Gallagher struck the post when through on goal.
45+1: Due to the amount of injuries etc, there is four minutes to be added on.
45: YELLOW! Jenkinson flies into a challenge on the right wing, making a little contact with the ball and a lot of contact with Hutton, forcing the referee to book him.
WATCH: STOCKDALE STAYS STRONG
42: DOUBLE CHANCE! Maghoma sends the ball down the channel towards Gallagher but it seems like Terry will cut it out, however the defender falls over in comical fashion, allowing the striker to get on the end of the pass and take it into the area, he then smashes his shot against the post and hits the rebound over.
41: Adomah finds himself in-field and gets the ball 25 yards from goal but he drags his shot a couple yards wide of Stockdale's goal.
40: John Terry has just cleared the ball straight out of play when under no pressure, much to the delight of the away fans.
37: SAVE! Snodgrass battles his way through into the Birmingham box before Grealish lays the ball off to Admoah who cuts inside and fires a shot straight at Stockdale who stands strong and palms the ball away.
34: Hogan and Dean battle for possession 35 yards from the Birmingham goal, the defender takes an extra touch and is dispossessed and Villa break but Snodgrass' cross is cleared for a corner.
32: Boga is definitely the most dangerous player in blue today and the Villa defenders are not enjoying having him run at them. His latest dribbling escapades end in a corner after Jedinak tackles him and sends the ball out of play.
29: SHOT! Davis gets the ball on the edge of the area and strikes it with his left foot but Terry gets in the way to send it wide.
28: Boga is the beneficiary of Colin getting through two Villa players before laying off to the winger who runs at the defence but he is stopped by Jedinak on the edge of the area.
26: CHANCE! Adomah breaks into the box and plays a short pass to Hogan who side foots a shot from six yards but Roberts is there to block it.
WATCH: HOGAN HITS THE BAR
23: Davis and Grealish have both hobbled to the sidelines. The Villa man will definitely carry on but Davis looks to be in trouble.
21: David Davis is down for Villa while Grealish is also on the deck. Both look to be in pain, especially Grealish who had Ndoye's studs land on his ankle.
