Villa take a 1-0 lead into their Carling Cup semi-final second leg against Blackburn on Wednesday – Gavin Beech gives you his top tip and all the best odds.

Portsmouth have confirmed that former defender Sol Campbell is suing the club for unpaid fees and bonuses totalling £1.7million.

The cash-strapped Premier League club are preparing to appeal against a winding-up petition from Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs following a High Court judge’s ruling.

However Pompey, who have struggled to even pay their playing staff on time on several occasions this season, have revealed that they have received a writ from Campbell’s lawyers for money that he is allegedly owed from image rights and bonus payments.

“The matter is being dealt with by our lawyers,” a club spokesman said when confirming the receipt of the writ.

The 2008 FA Cup champions also owe about £10m to clubs in the Premier League and abroad and are currently barred from signing new players because of a Premier League transfer embargo.
