Roy Keane and John Terry lock horns in touchline spat during Championship tie

Shocking to see from two of football's most laid-back figures...

Roy Keane and John Terry were involved in a very in-character touchline spat during Nottingham Forest's game against Aston Villa last night.

Keane and Terry, currently assistant managers of their former clubs Forest and Villa respectively, had a heated exchange of words on the sideline as the game went on. Fortunately, it remained a verbal discussion and no punches were thrown.

On the field, Jack Colback put Forest ahead after just three minutes, but the home side's lead was short-lived as John McGinn equalised for Villa just four minutes later. It looked as though we were set for a repeat of the 10-goal thriller that saw the two sides draw 5-5 back in late November.

As it turned out, there would be just the four goals in this game, with McGinn picking up his second after just 15 minutes before Kourtney Hause added a third just after the hour mark, securing all three points for the visitors.

That win puts Villa 8th in the Championship table, just two points behind Derby County, as they look to make a late push for the play-offs, hoping to go one better than last season.

Forest, meanwhile, lurk just one point behind in 10th. A play-off push is not out of the question, but given the stiff competition ahead of them, it's unlikely.
