MATCH REPORT

*The Sporting Life*
Monday, 8 October 1894

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE FOREST V. ASTON VILLA. A very big holiday crowd assembled at the New Town Ground, Nottingham Saturday afternoon to witness this match. Forest had, of late, gone very badly, and after their defeat at the hands of Preston North End on their own enclosure on Thursday, the supporters were prepared on Saturday to see them "play the Villans.” Luckily, however, for the club and its admirers, the team succeeded in coming out of the ordeal with flying colours. Forest won the toss, and the visitors kicked off against the wind, although there was not much prevailing at the time. Rain had made the surface of the arena very greasy. After the visitors had forced an unsuccessful corner, the local forwards rushed down in line and on Carnelly centring to Rose, the latter scored in less than three minutes from the start. The Birmingham men put in some brilliant work and equalised through Devey, also in the centre. At the interval no further points had been added. Scoring in second half was rendered difficult owing to the stubborn resistance offered by the rival backs. Dorrell was badly injured through colliding with the wire rope on the left wing, but did not leave the field. M’Pherson, one of the Forest halves, shot a second goal, and finally the match resulted in the defeat of the visitors by two to one.
