Irish set for Sunday afternoon action…25/11/2018

With the confirmation of the new international manager set for later this Sunday afternoon, Championship players Conor Hourihane and veteran Glenn Whelan started for Aston Villa who defeated local rivals Birmingham City by four goals to two in Villa Park early this afternoon. Striker Scott Hogan was an unused substitute.
Wolverhampton Wanderers went down to a surprise two nil home defeat by visitors Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon. Matt Doherty, who missed last week’s international fixtures with a facial injury, started for the hosts and was doubly culpable for the opening goal after just six minutes.
