Twenty is almost plenty as Villa choose to do the right thing, for once.

Aston Villa have taken the time to announce some good news. Anyone travelling away to Upton Park to watch the game against West Ham in February will only have to pay a ticket cost of £25! This news comes on the back of a crushing defeat by Norwich, and it's more than likely that the two are linked - but I'll take what I'm given to be quite honest.

Villa can confirm subsidised ticket prices for our clash with West Ham.

We face the Hammers on Tuesday February 2 with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Our allocation for the Boleyn Ground encounter is 1,528.Thanks to our away match initiative, prices are now £25 [adults] and £15 [O65s, U21s, U16s].Supporters who have already purchased at the standard prices, including those in the away scheme, will be refunded.

For those out of the loop, the Football Supporters Federation have been campaigning to reduce the cost of tickets to away games to £20 and Aston Villa have almost, almost met that with this reduction. Whilst it doesn't quite reach the target, anything that helps the long-suffering supporters of this football club is a good sign - even more so when it comes from the club itself.
