ON THIS DAY

Eric Houghton's Villa suffer a second successive heavy defeat and have now shipped twelve goals in two games with a five goal thrashing at Fratton Park. As a result Villa's previous eight game unbeaten run is a distant memory as they make it one win, one draw and two defeats in four division one games so far this season, scoring eight and conceding fifteen.
