Blues and Villa charged 

Birmingham City and Aston Villa have both been charged by the FA for failing to control their players in the Second City derby on Sunday. 

Villa won the game 1-0 thanks to Jack Grealish’s winner at St Andrew’s on an afternoon where he was punched in the face by a Blues supporter who has since been sent to jail.

Grealish was in the thick of the action throughout which started with a heavy Maikel Kieftenbeld challenge on the midfielder in the fifth minute.

The Blues man was booked and the foul sparked a brief confrontation between both sets of players which has now been picked up by the FA.

It was confirmed on Thursday morning that both clubs have been charged with a breach of FA Rule E20.

It is alleged they failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during the fifth minute of the fixture and both clubs have until Monday to respond.
