MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Macmillan, one of the Derby, forwards, who came into collision with a member of his own team, and was rendered unconscious."

*The Birmingham Daily Post*
Monday, 5 October 1891

DERBY COUNTY V. ASTON VILLA

The meeting of these well-known Midland clubs at Derby created a large amount of interest, and fully ten thousand spectators visited the ground.

Derby County were still without, the assistance of Archie Goodall, but the visitors put a very strong team into the field.

At the outset the Aston men pressed their opponents very closely, and when the game had been in progress a quarter of an hour Dickson scored the first goal for them.

However, the Derby team played up in fine style, and amidst great excitement Storer succeeded in equalising the score.

On the ball being restarted the Derby forwards made a strong attack, and Mills sent the ball through the posts. When the referee's whistle blew at half-time Derby County led by 2 goals to 1.

The commencement of the second half was marred by a painful accident to Macmillan, one of the Derby, forwards, who came into collision with a member of his own team, and was rendered unconscious.

He was conveyed to the infirmary and was reported to be suffering from concussion of the brain. He is, however , progressing favourably.

Despite this misfortune Derby County more than held their own. In the end they were able to claim a victory by 4 goals to 2.
