ON THIS DAY

Joe Mercer's Villa lose five successive games for the first time since 1958-59 under Eric Houghton which led to Mercerโ€™s appointment in December 1958.

Villaโ€™s latest fixture is their fourth in twelve days as their wildly interrupted season delivered the inevitable fixture list congestion in the final two months of the season.

As a result, Villa make it twelve wins, seven draws and twelve defeats in thirty one division one games so far this season as a campaign of such promise before the fixture interruption collapses further.
