Villa ace Agbonlahor aims to continue haunting Birmingham

Aston Villa striker Gabby Agbonlahor is aiming to carry on his scoring record against Birmingham City today.

Agbonlahor has only once failed to score in six meetings with Blues - and even then he won the match- winning penalty.

Villa boss Gerard Houllier said: "I hope Gaby keeps that record. The local boys obviously relish and understand this type of game and what it means.

"If you ask Marc Albrighton he will tell you he was very unlucky and felt miserable not to play in the first of these games this season because he was suspended after getting sent off against Burnley. Then for the second he was ill with appendicitis.

"Marc will be playing - and starting - on Sunday. It's the type of game for the academy players, although it can be fiery as well so we have to be careful."
