ON THIS DAY

Dick Taylor's Villa are now unbeaten in six League games for the first time this season and in a remarkable turn of form register their fourth win in six to make it fifteen wins, four draws and twenty one defeats in forty division one matches this season.

At the same point in 1963-64, under former manager Joe Mercer, Villa had lost seventeen and won ten before going on to finish 19th, two places above relegation after losing their final two games of the season.

Villaโ€™s best run of the season stood in stark contrast to their form prior to April but better late than never the end of season run secured their top flight status in an otherwise disappointing season under Dick Taylor save for a Cup run highlighted by the sound beating of lower division opposition.
