Monday 14 September 1891

ASTON VILLA av. WEST BROMWICH ALBION.

The meeting between these famous Midland clubs at Perry Bar, Birmingham. was invested with especial interest on Saturday, as in the opening League fixtures on September 5 each team had gained a notable victory. West Bromwich scoring four goals to one against Everton, and Aston Villa five goals one against the Blackburn Rovers.

Kicking off shortly after half-past three, the Albion attacked in capital style, and within seven minutes of the start Pearson seat in a shot which scored for the visitors.

Play afterwards ruled more even until the last few minutes of the opening half, when Aston Villa pressed hard, but without effect, and ends were changed with the score standing one goal to none in favour of West Bromwich.

Playing uphill afterwards, Aston Villa, showed to very great advantage. while Albion fell off greatly. Showing excellent form at all points, Aston Villa put on five goals in succession but the Albion were quite unable to break through the hime defence, the game thus ending in a brilliant victory for Aston Villa by 5 goals to 1.
