  • Thanks for joining me today, please stay tuned for all the best post-match reaction.

  • All over here and Villa claim a big win, although it was far from convincing.

  • Whittingham curls the free-kick over the bar.

  • Poor challenge from Clark on Campbell and he is booked.

  • Benteke plays in Bowery, he goes for goal but it is into the side-netting.

  • Kozak is replaced by Bowery.

  • Lowton's attempted clearance comes off Vlaar and goes for a corner. Whittingham takes, he finds Caulker but it is over the bar. Another corner given.

  • Westwood unleashes a vicious drive but Caulker does well to make the block.

  • GOAL - LIBOR KOZAK - The Czech heads home as Cardiff fail to clear their lines and Lowton's heads back into the six-yard box for the Kozak to head home.

  • Maynard replaces Bellamy.

  • Kozak latches onto poor Taylor clearance but his control lets him down and Caulker clears.

  • Villa on the attack again down the left, Clark combing well with Tonev and the Bulgarian wins a corner.

  • GOAL - LEANDRO BACUNA - Brilliant free-kick from the Dutchman as he curls the ball over the wall and into the corner.

  • Medel is first player booked as he hauls back Bacuna, cynical stuff from the Chilean. Chance for Villa to have a go at goal here about 25-yards out.

  • Matthew Lowton replaces El Ahmadi.

  • Another half-chance for Benteke as Clark puts ball into the box but the Belgian glances it wide.

  • Cardiff break and Bellamy breaks looking for Mutch, Villa clear but only as far as Medel but he can only fire it high and wide.

  • Nice build up from Sylla and Westwood, he looks for Benteke but Caulker clears.

  • Villa counter on Cardiff, it comes for El Ahmadi and he looks for Benteke in the box and he finds him, but he heads over.

  • Campbell is brought down by Clark. Chance for them to put this into the box as their defenders make their way forward. Whittingham takes but it is straight at Guzan.
