MATCH SUMMARY

Ravaged by injuries, Villa face off against a top three side, to make matters worse it is neighbours Albion. They lost, but there was no disgrace here, Nigel Sims played what needed to be and was one of his greatest games in a Villa shirt, whilst 16 year old Wally Hazelden scored with his first shot on his debut to put Villa ahead before creating Villa's second to retake the lead. Win, lose or draw, the memories are far more important than that.
