ON THIS DAY

Joe Mercer's Villa end 1958 in torrid form with three successive defeats under the new boss to make it six wins, four draws and fifteen defeats in twenty five division one games so far this season. As a result Villa enter 1959 staring relegation in the face with little sign on a fightback being on the horizon.
