MATCH REPORT

Monday 05 December 1892

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY V. ASTON VILLA

These clubs met in dull, cold weather, at Sheffield, before 6,000 people. Both teams were thoroughly representative, but the soft state of the ground seriously handicapped the efforts of the players. With the wind in their favour, Aston Villa, scored through Dowds within a quarter of an hour, but about ten minutes later Spikesley equalised.

Rowani followed with a second goal for Sheffield, and Davis put on another, the home side thus leading when the team crossed over by 3 goals to 1.

With the advantage of the wind behind them, Wednesday pressed hard at the beginning of the second half, and within a few minutes goals by Woolhouse and Mumford gave the home side a lead of four points.

Devey, however, followed with a goal for the Villa, and after some even play the same member of the visiting eleven obtained another point. Nothing else of importance being done the match ended in a victory for Sheffield Wednesday by 5 goals to 3,
