MATCH SUMMARY

Having been embarrassed in the League Cup by Albion earlier in the season, Villaโ€™s utterly perplexing form under Dick Taylor surprises again as his charges race into a three goal lead and look like exacting like for like revenge on their neighbours. But two goals in the last minute keep the game alive until the last.
