A MOVING minute's applause was held at Villa Park on Tuesday night to pay tribute to Jlloyd Samuel who was killed in a car crash in Lymm.

The 37-year-old ex-Aston Villa and Bolton player was killed in the two-vehicle collision on West Lane.

And before Villa took on Middlesbrough in the Championship play-off on Tuesday night, the club paid tribute to the former defender who died aged 37.

The home side wore black armbands and there was also a minute's applause before the game while fans chanted the defender's name ahead of kick-off.

During the applause, Villa's big screens showed Samuel's two league goals for the club - both against Charlton during the 2003-04 season.
