JOHN TERRY was grabbed by the neck by Cheikh N'Doye during Aston Villa's 2-0 win over Birmingham City on Sunday.

Villa went on to seal the win nine minutes from time when Conor Hourihane pounced on a poor clearance to slam a ferocious strike up over Stockdale and into the net from 20 yards.

At Villa Park on Sunday, Adomah broke the deadlock on the hour mark, receiving a pass from Jack Grealish before releasing a shot into the bottom corner.

Jedinak was the only change for Villa, who were searching for their seventh-straight league win - what would be their best streak in 28 years.

He repeatedly set up promising moves which kept the visitors at full stretch to stay in the game.

The 33-year-old was rewarded with a start over the in-form Birkir Bjarnason in what was a big gamble by Villa boss Steve Bruce.

Some grafting work by Maikel Kieftenbeld and David Davis kept Birmingham in contention and just before the break they should have taken the lead with their first strike on goal.

Scott Hogan then rattled the Birmingham crossbar on 18 minutes and came close again eight minutes later after being played in by Albert Adomah, though Roberts got in the way of the latter effort.

In the last minute Ndoye was sent off for a second booking.
