Villa v Ipswich match programme: Benteke poster in Cup edition

Christian Benteke is proving to be a giant of a striker for Villa, having scored his ninth goal for the club in the 2-2 draw at Swansea on New Year's Day.

And young Villa fans will be delighted to learn that there's a giant pull-out poster of the Belgium international FREE with the programme for the FA Cup-tie against Ipswich Town.

It's an offbeat image of Christian, showing his name and number on the back of Villa's away shirt as he celebrates a goal - and on the reverse side there's a great action shot of skipper Ron Vlaar.

The Ipswich programme includes a chat with goalkeeper Brad Guzan who, at the age of 28, was the oldest player when Villa kicked off at Swansea with the youngest line-up in the club's history.

There's also the story of the last autograph ever signed by a man who played for both Villa and Ipswich, while we take a look at some epic FA Cup encounters against the Tractor Boys from the past.

We also preview the eagerly-awaited Capital One Cup semi-final against Bradford City - and reveal why Villa are destined to win a major trophy this year!

The Villa News & Record costs £3 but for a really great deal, look out for our "five-for-a-five" programme bags.

These contain the current programme, two Ipswich back issues, one FA Cup back issue and a Villa Poster Book - all for just £5.

Back issues for the games against Stoke City, Tottenham and Wigan will also be on sale at programme kiosks around Villa Park.
