MATCH TIMELINE

Saturday, 7 May 1938

ON THIS DAY

Villa end an outstanding season with four consecutive victories, twenty five in total, an FA Cup semi final, the scalps of three division one clubs, promotion and the second division Championship after two seasons away from the top flight.

The difference to 1936-37 could barely be overstated and the difficulties of the previous three seasons were soon forgotten.

The jury on Jimmy Hogan was no longer out, he was the mastermind of promotion and a return to scoring form for Villa, as the top flight beckoned.
