Villa supporters will be feasting on the Petrov Pie at Saturday’s game against Sunderland after a vote to determine the most popular pie fillings.

As part of a special promotion, fans were asked to suggest their favourite pie filling with the winning entry chosen to be served around the ground on matchday.

There is a Bulgarian flavour to the latest winning pie, which has been named in honour of Villa’s club captain Stiliyan Petrov.

A percentage from sales of the Petrov Pie will be donated to the Cure Leukaemia charity as the skipper continues his battle against the illness.
