Express and Star: Villa's trip to Newcastle has also been moved back to 5.30pm on February 22 for Sky. But should Manchester United be scheduled to play in the Champions League on February 25, the game will switch to Sunday, February 23 at 1.30pm and remain live on Sky.
Express and Star: Paul Lambert today denied a rift with Matt Lowton and insisted the out-of-favour Villa defender is close to a return. The manager has reiterated he has no problem with the right-back - who has started just once in almost three months.
