(Repeats to link story to alert)

Oct 3 (Reuters) - Aston Villa have terminated the contract of manager Steve Bruce following a dismal start to the season, the Championship club said on Wednesday.

Villa have three wins in 11 games and are 12th in the table. They were held to a 3-3 draw at home by Preston on Tuesday night.

One fan hurled a cabbage at the manager before the game, in anger at the team’s recent performance. (Reporting by Shrivathsa Sridhar in Bengaluru; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
