A second plane chartered to fly over Old Trafford

It's thought a second banner has been booked to fly above Old Trafford this weekend.

Reports suggest a high-street bookmaker is behind the second banner – which will be flown from a second plane.

The bookmaker is refusing to reveal the message their plane will drag across the skies.

A plane has already been charted by angry fans to show the banner ' Wrong One, Moyes Out".

The first plane, chartered by angry fans, is scheduled to be flown over the ground for ten minutes before kick-off and then for the first five minutes of the match against Aston Villa.

Meanwhile David Moyes, speaking ahead of the game, insisted he has fan support.

ITV News has seen the 'Moyes out' banner set to fly over Old Trafford on Saturday.

The protest comes after United's disappointing 3-0 loss to local rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Air Ads' chief pilot Chris Mustow, who will not be flying the plane tomorrow, told ITV News:

"We have to ensure we keep the message clean - there's no swear words in there - can't be seen to insult people directly and defamation of character._

This one will be fine - we're not going to cause a riot or anything._

At the end of the day we're employed to do a job and that's what we do."
