*The Sporting Life*
Monday 28 March 1892

SUNDERLAND V. ASTON VILLA. This game, which was the most attractive feature in Saturday afternoon’s Association list, was decided on the ground of the Wearsiders before a gate of fully 12,000 spectators.

The Sunderland players were smarting under the English Cup semi final defeat at Sheffield and were determined to win.

Both sides were fully represented, the first half was keenly fought. The Brum centre started the play, and at once Now and Porteus were called upon to stop fierce rushes by Athersmith and Hodgetts respectively.

The home right and centre were dangerous but the Villa defence proved just as good as that of their opponents. A short time afterwards Campbell, of the Villa side, had a grand opening, but failed to shoot direct at the moment.

Then the Sunderland attack looked like scoring and Campbell foiled a number of shots from Wilson.

Again the fortunes went in favour of the Villa, but Sunderland got the first corner, which they failed to turn to account. After that nothing particular was done up to half time, at which stage no goals had been scored.

On crossing over Campbell started on behalf of the home side and after the Villa had retaliated, Wilson. Campbell, and Hannah went off together, and from a neat pass the former scored the first goal amid tremendous cheering.

A few minutes after the play had been again started for the centre, Devey worked his way through, and put on an equalising goal.

Sunderland went work again, and just before the whistle sounded for lime Scott put on Sunderland's winning goal. Result —Sunderland, two : Aston Villa, one.
