Jack Grealish scored the winner as Aston Villa beat Birmingham 1-0 in a Second City derby overshadowed by an attack on Grealish by a fan.
The incident came in the 10th minute when a pitch invader swung an arm at the midfielder and knocked him to the floor, before being removed from the ground and later arrested.
In a first half marred by further stoppages and injuries, the best chance fell to Villa’s Anwar El Ghazi who shot was saved after Grealish played him through.
Grealish (67) hit back in the best way possible in the second half, waltzing his way into the box before finding the corner.
