Villa stop a run of four defeats and twenty goals conceded to keep a clean sheet and record their third win of the season. As a result, Villa climb to joint 18th alongside Sunderland and Albion one point clear of the relegation places. Such is the relief at a third win in twelve under Dick Taylor that the team receives a standing ovation from the crowd at the end of the game. Meanwhile in the tiresome saga of Tony Hateley, after his seventh transfer request and no takers, the desperate want away gets a lucky break as Chelseaโ€™s Peter Osgood breaks his leg opening the way for a bid for Hateley as cover.
