Aston Villa coach Steve Agnew was sent to the stands during the Championship match at Nottingham Forest.

Agnew joined Steve Bruce's backroom team over the festive period and played an important part in their upturn in fortunes in the league.

He sat alongside Bruce and his other coaches during the clash against Forest at the City Ground, only to be asked to move.

It transpires that Agnew was not named as a coach on the teamsheet Villa handed in ahead of the match and was relocated by the officials after being vocal during the first half.

Villa took the lead through Scott Hogan on 18 minutes as Bruce's men went in search of their third successive Championship win.

Fit again captain John Terry returned to Bruce's Championship starting line up at the expense of Tommy Elphick, who dropped to the bench, while Glenn Whelan came in for the injured Mile Jedinak.

Gabby gesture

Aston Villa fan Moin Younis will watch next month’s Second City derby in style thanks to Gabby Agbonlahor.

Moin, 18, captured the nation’s hearts at the Pride of Britain awards towards the end of last year and continues to work closely with Villa’s foundation.

The teenager, who was born with a rare skin disorder which causes his skin to blister or bleed, is also an ambassador for Birmingham children’s charity Acorns, who used to be the club’s official kit partner.

And Moin will be at Villa Park on February 11 for this season’s final clash between the Second City’s two clubs.

Agbonlahor, so often the scourge of Blues, told Moin the good news via Instagram, saying: “Your tickets sorted for the Blues game bro.”

Moin replied: “SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW. I’LL BE WATCHING THE VILLA V BLUES GAME LIVE IN STYLE THANKS TO @ga11official. Cant thank you enough.”
