"Play was resumed at a tremendous pace, and the ball travelled from one end to the other without either side being able to claim superiority."

DERBY COUNTY v. ASTON VILLA
The tie in the second round of the National Cup competition was decided at Derby.
Both teams were in splendid condition, and the game was fast throughout. At the commencement play was very even, the assistance of each goalkeeper frequently being called into requisition; but half an hour elapsed before a goal was got, and that was placed to the credit of the home team.
Play was resumed at a tremendous pace, and the ball travelled from one end to the other without either side being able to claim superiority.
Derby County got a second goal after half time; from a left wing pass, Evans shot in the Villa custodian’s hands and he let it slip through.
From now to the finish the excitement was very great but no further score was made and Derby County won by two goals to one.
