Sunderland confirm new Villa date

04 March 2010 01:22
SUNDERLAND have confirmed that their Premier League fixture away to Aston Villa has been rescheduled for 7:45pm on Wednesday March 24.

The fixture had been due to take place this Saturday but was cancelled last week when the Villains overcame Crystal Palace in a fifth round replay in the FA Cup.

The victory meant that Martin O'Neill's side would instead face a trip to Coca-Cola Championship side Reading on Sunday March 7.

Tickets purchased for the original fixture will remain valid for the rearranged match.
