Aston Villa moved out of the bottom three of the Premiership - but left Wolves in deep relegation trouble as a splendid second-half rally ultimately proved in vain for Dave Jones' side who lost 3-2 at Villa Park.

Aston Villa will have to play two matches in 48 hours early in the new year because of a television mix-up.

Villa - who along with all their Barclaycard Premiership rivals will already have endured a similar schedule over Christmas - agreed to switch their home FA Cup tie with Manchester United to Sunday January 4, after receiving indications that the game would be live on Sky Sports.

But it was then decided not to show the game on the satellite channel - and neighbours Birmingham, who take on Blackburn in the third round on January 3, were not in a favour of swapping their fixture.

It means Villa will now play the United game and then host Portsmouth on Tuesday January 6 - in a match which is being shown live on Sky.

Villa back on the winning track as Stefan Moore and Juan Pablo Angel fired Aston Villa to their first Premiership away win for almost a year as Blackburn paid the price for a series of blunders.
Lee Hendrie took advantage of defensive dithering to set up Moore for an easy goal.
Angel then made sure of their first league away win since January 28 - the last one was 15 away trips previously, a 5-2 triumph at Middlesbrough - as Blackburn's defence failed to cut out a threatening cross and the Colombian pounced to fire home.They are starting to look like a team now and it was a good performance...

Aston Villa are on the verge of signing Colombian international midfielder Freddy Grisales..

Grisales is expected to cost 550,000 from Colombian club Atletico Nacional and will link up with international team-mate Juan Pablo Angel...

After the defeat by Liverpool last week David O'Leary has admitted that he will need to embark on a major spending spree in the summer to bolster his Aston Villa squad after Mark Kinsella became the eighth player to leave the club since he took charge.O'Leary is unlikely to have any significant funds available before the end of the current transfer window to strengthen one of the smallest first team squads in the Barclaycard Premiership.

But next summer Villa have another five senior players out of contract, including the likes of Dion Dublin and Ronny Johnsen, to leave him with a group of senior players that will barely number double figures.Oyvind Leonhardsen, Steve Staunton, Alpay, Bosko Balaban, Alan Wright, Peter Enckelman, Ian Taylor and now Kinsella - to West Brom - have all departed since O'Leary replaced Graham Taylor eight months ago.Only the former Sunderland duo of goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and midfielder Gavin McCann have headed in the opposite direction for 4million - O'Leary's total outlay in the transfer market with Villa.

Sir it doesn't look he will be going on a spending spree as David O'Leary has warned that Aston Villa are heading for a massive player-shortage crisis this summer.O'Leary has already off-loaded nine players since he replaced Graham Taylor in the Villa Park hotseat eight months ago and his squad is down to the bare bones.He was able to bring in just two replacements in goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen and midfielder Gavin McCann from Sunderland for 4million.

Aston Villa are up to fifth at least until Newcastle's match after coming from a goal down to beat Middlesbrough 2-1 despite playing most of the second half with 10 men.

Joseph-Desire Job rifled in a spectacular shot after 40 minutes from Gaizka Mendieta's pass but Villa levelled when Gareth Barry headed home Thomas Hitzlsperger's cross.

The visitors had Nolberto Solano sent off in the second half after he swung an arm at George Boateng but the numerical disadvantage did not hamper them and substitute Peter Crouch grabbed an 89th-minute winner.

Aston Villa have confirmed that Dion Dublin and Ronny Johnsen will not be offered new contracts next season.
Dublin, 35, will leave after five years at Villa as manager David O'Leary turns to younger players for the future.

Aston Villa manager David O'Leary is stepping up his bid to further strengthen his squad after completing the 3 million signing of AC Milan central defender Martin Laursen.

O'Leary is understood to be targeting a 2million swoop for Norwegian winger Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Villa watched the 22-year-old, also being linked with Manchester United and Blackburn, in action for Tromso against Molde on Thursday evening.

Pedersen has just broken into his national side, helping Norway to a 4-1 win over Northern Ireland in February and has been recommended by Villa's chief scout Ian Broomfield.

Aston Villa are hoping to sign Liverpool's Czech striker Milan Baros according to the player's agent. Villa boss David O'Leary is keen to bolster his squad after seeing his side miss out on qualifying for Europe on the last day of the season. O'Leary has made a new striker one of his top summer targets and he is hoping to lure Baros from Anfield. Baros found himself out of the starting line-up in the final few weeks of the season after battling back from serious injury.

Marcus Allback believes his time at Aston Villa could be drawing to a close with the club ready to listen to offers for the striker.
The Swedish international held talks with manager David O'Leary and it now appears the Midlands outfit are ready to sell, if the price is right.

Allback himself admits he would be happy to stay with The Premiership side after settling to life in England, although he is willing to consider any offer that comes in.

David O'Leary is doing a good job at Villia and is proving he is a decent manager. I expect some good buy's by him and for them to do pretty well next season.

Aston Villa defender Liam Ridgewell has revealed he would love to sign a new contract - despite knowing he faces yet another battle to win a first-team place.

Ridgewell could have expected to have figured highly in manager David O'Leary's plans for next season after breaking through into the seniors towards the end of the last campaign.

The 19-year-old figured in four of Villa's final seven games, and his hopes must have risen when Ronny Johnsen and Dion Dublin left the club.

But O'Leary has since signed Denmark international Martin Laursen for 3million from AC Milan, and there is talk of the Irishman making a move for Chelsea's Robert Huth.
