Darren Bent lines up for Aston Villa against Hereford United
7:42pm Tuesday 23rd August 2011 in Other
WITH Rob Purdie, Stefan Stam and Benoit Dalibard out of action with injury, the Bulls defence at Villa Park for the Carling Cup second round tie had a makeshift look.
Danny Williams was named as right-back, his first Bulls start for six years, with Ryan Green moved inside to partner Michael Townsend.
Joe Heath returned at left-back.
In midfield, James McQuilkin came in on the left to take the place of the cup-tied Simon Clist.
In attack, Stuart Fleetwood continued alongside Delroy Facey, who took over the captaincy.
While Villa made a number of changes, they were still able to include England striker Darren Bent, who was supported in attack by summer signing Charles N’Zogbia.
Hereford: Cornell; Williams, Green, Townsend, Heath; Colbeck, Featherstone, Pell, McQuilkin; Fleetwood, Facey. Subs: Hoult, McCarthy, John, Feeley, Perkins, Lunt, Arquin.
Aston Villa: Guzan; Lichaj, Dunne, Clark, Herd; Albrighton, Makoun, Ireland, Bannan; N’Zogbia; Bent. Subs not used: Marshall, Delfouneso, Beye, Weimann, Hogg, Baker, Lowry.
Referee: Kevin Wright (Cambridgeshire).
