Press Association The defeat to Swansea ended Tim Sherwood’s eight-month reign at Villa Park and the club appointed former Lyon boss Remi Garde as his successor on Monday. Richards will be available again for the visit of his former club Manchester City on Sunday where Garde will take charge of the team for the first time. The defender – who has also been fined £10,000 – will miss Monday’s Barclays Premier League match at Tottenham after admitting a misconduct charge following Villa’s 2-1 defeat to Swansea last month. The charge related to an incident in the tunnel after the final whistle with Richards still angry following a clash with the Swans’ Federico Fernandez which happened during the game. Aston Villa skipper Micah Richards has been banned for one match with immediate effect by the Football Association.
It remains uncertain if Jackie Tyrrell and Richie Power will be involved in the match day squad as they recover from injury.Tyrrell picked up a stress fracture in his foot in July and required surgery to repair the damage. But he has been back training in recent weeks and, while not expected to start, he is an option off the bench for Brian Cody. Power has not featured at all this year as he battled with continuous knee problems but, like Tyrrell, he has made progress in recent weeks and provides options if required.Cody is expected to name an unchanged team tonight for what is his 16th All-Ireland final, including replays, as a manager.The two sides will throw in at 3.30 on Sunday afternoon in Croke Park for the clash.
