Villa win their first game of the season after five attempts but have to mount a huge rearguard action to do so after Tony Hateley lumbered Villa in front. As a result of their first two point haul of the campaign, Villa climb to joint 17th, one point above the relegation and level on points with Fulham and West Ham.
