Steve Bruce sacked by Aston Villa

Steve Bruce was attacked by a cabbage

Steve Bruce's side would have been looking at the match as one they could have won with their opponents sitting rock-bottom of the Championship table.

Managerless Aston Villa now sit in the bottom half of the Sky Bet Championship table after winning just three of their opening 11 matches under former boss Bruce.

Purslow will now begin the hunt for a new manager, with Villa still to appoint their new sporting director.

That defeat condemned the Villa Park faithful to a third season outside the Premier League and a financial crisis which was only solved by an 11th hour multi-million pound investment from Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens who took majority control of the club in July.
