Yakubu opens account at Reading….

Yakubu

Yakubu Aiyegbeni came off the bench to score his first goal for Reading and secure an FA Cup fifth-round 2 – 1 victory at Derby. Hal Robson-Kanu gave the visitors a 53rd-minute lead after Stephen Warnock had been sent off on his Derby debut for fouling Jamie Mackie. Darren Bent’s fifth goal in as many games levelled the scores in the all-Championship tie eight minutes later. With a replay beckoning, January signing Yakubu fired in a low left-footed shot. Rams boss Steve McClaren made seven changes to the side that drew 2-2 with Bournemouth in the league in midweek.

Tim Sherwood appointed new Aston Villa boss….

Tim Sherwood

Tim Sherwood has been appointed manager at Aston Villa, signing a contract at the club until summer 2018. Villa sacked Paul Lambert on Wednesday after a winless run of 10 league games in which they scored just two goals. Sherwood, 46, replaced Andre Villas-Boas as Tottenham manager in December 2013 but was sacked at the end of last season and has been out of work since. “It is a great honour to manage one of the biggest clubs in English football,” said Sherwood. “I can’t wait to get started and I’m really looking forward to the challenge.” Sherwood takes over a Villa side that have struggled badly since taking 10 points from their first four matches – scoring just 12 league goals in 25 games, the lowest in Premier League history at that stage.
