Premier League lukewarm over supporter standing areas

The Premier League is not planning to lobby for a change to current rules which ban standing areas in top-flight grounds. Some clubs are keen to introduce 'safe standing' areas with Aston Villa interested in furthering the campaign.

Standing at grounds in England's top two divisions has been banned since all-seater stadiums were ordered in the wake of the 1989 Hillsborough disaster and the Taylor Report which followed.

A Premier League spokesman said: "We support the current legislation and see no reason to change it."
