MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Towards the close of the first half the Villa were several times near scoring, but the Wednesday backs, Earp and Langley, defended well, whilst Massey saved on several occasions, and at the interval the teams changed ends without either having scored."

*The Sporting Life*
Monday, 5 November 1894

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY v. ASTON VILLA.

About 8,000 spectators attended Olive Grove Grounds on Saturday and witnessed a most interesting contest. The Villa team was the same that beat Liverpool on the previous Saturday, but in the Wednesday eleven Massey kept goal in place of Allan.

The Villa won the toss, and Wednesday kicked off against the wind. Villa at once attacked, and for some time had the best of the play, but the Wednesday defence was so good that the Villa could not break through.

Towards the close of the first half the Villa were several times near scoring, but the Wednesday backs, Earp and Langley, defended well, whilst Massey saved on several occasions, and at the interval the teams changed ends without either having scored.

On resuming the home team had the wind and sun in their favour, and six minutes after the re-start Spikesley headed the ball into the Villa net, only to given off-side.

For some time the Wednesdayites had the best of the play. Ferrier and Brady each shooting wide. Then the Villa had a turn pressing, and Cowan sent one in that Massey disposed of, whilst at the Wednesday end Wilkes conceded a corner, which was well directed, and Brady headed the ball, which glanced through off Chatt.

With only about eight minutes to play several corners accrued Wednesday, but none of them were improved upon, and though the home team preyed until the close they could not increase their score, and the result was โ€” Sheffield Wednesday, one goal; Aston Villa, none.
