MATCH QUOTES

"Accrington played up in a surprising manner subsequently, and gave Dunning, the Villa goalkeeper, some very hard work, they could no gain the winning point, and the game was left drawn with the score at 1 goal each."

MATCH REPORT

*The Birmingham Daily Post*
Monday, 17 April 1893

ACCRINGTON V. ASTON VILLA. The meeting of these-teams at Accrington did not seem to arouse much interest, only about 1,000 spectators being present. The opening part of the game was not very exciting, neither goalkeeper being at any time severely pressed, and when the interval arrived no score had been obtained by either team. On resuming the Accrington team led off with a spirited attack on the Villa goal, and after ten minutes play Whitehead succeeded in scoring the first point in the game for Accrington. The home side were not, however, left long in possession of this advantage, as about ten minute later Devey equalised for the Villa, and though Accrington played up in a surprising manner subsequently, and gave Dunning, the Villa goalkeeper, some very hard work, they could no gain the winning point, and the game was left drawn with the score at 1 goal each.
