Villa are forced to play on another pitch unworthy of hosting football but this time it's not ice and snow but mud and water as 1963's weather continues to play havoc. Despite the win Villa drop to 7th in the table as those around them have played two, three and four games more. Villa face their third game in four days in 48 hours - an FA Cup tie with Manchester United.
