Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage wants to reclaim his crown for the team's most-hated player from David Bentley.

Former Birmingham midfielder Savage hopes to make a first team return against old foes Aston Villa tonight and said: "I love it when fans give me stick. My first Villa-Birmingham game was the one when Peter Enckelman had a nightmare and I never let him forget about it.

"But I'm disappointed because Bents is getting more boos than me at away grounds! I'm going to have to do something about that so I can be the pantomime villain again."
