Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers

About this programme

Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers (Kick-off 7.45pm). Gary Lineker is joined by Alan Shearer, Alan Hansen and Gareth Southgate to present all the action from this evening's League Cup semi-final second-leg encounter at Villa Park. A first-half goal by James Milner gave Villa a 1-0 victory in the first leg at Ewood Park last week, and Martin O'Neill's men are favourites to reach the final. The winner of this tie will play the victor of the Manchester derby, the second leg of which will be played next Wednesday, after the first match was postponed due to the heavy snow.
