The Birmingham City supporter who attacked Jack Grealish during Aston Villa’s 1-0 win at St. Andrew’s has pleaded guilty to pitch invasion and assault.

Villa captain Grealish was punched from behind by the pitch invader in the early stages of Sunday’s derby.

West Midlands Police confirmed Paul Mitchell, 27, was charged after the game and he appeared at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court on Monday.

Birmingham City confirmed Mr Mitchell has been banned from the Championship club for life.

Grealish showed no ill effects from the incident and went on to score the only goal in his side’s 1-0 victory before leaping over the advertising hoarding to celebrate with the away supporters.

The police made four arrests in total for suspected assault or violent disorder offences.
