April 14 (Bloomberg) -- Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish has warned his defenders to stay on their feet when going against Manchester United’s Ashley Young tomorrow.

Former Villa winger Young was accused of diving to win a penalty kick in last weekend’s 2-0 win over QPR, resulting in a red card for defender Shaun Derry. Television replays showed minimal contact between the two.

“We will stay on our feet against all United players,” the Mail quoted McLeish as saying. “Ashley is a quality player. He is renowned for his assists, but players have become clever. Sometimes the slightest touch can be enough for them go do down.”
