MATCH SUMMARY

Villa record a surprise victory over League leaders Manchester United to climb out of the relegation places to 19th and level on points with Sunderland and Fulham two points clear of the drop after 19 games. The game though is notable for more appalling behaviour from Nobby Stiles. The football thug manages to get Lew Chatterley booked to boot.

MATCH QUOTES

I saw Stiles and Tony Scott having an argument near the touchline and the linesman waving his flag to attract the referee's attention. โ€œI went over to try and break up the argument but only got near enough to put my hand on Stiles shoulder. โ€œThe next thing I knew he had hit me. โ€œThe referee took my name. and he told me not to do it again or he would send me off. โ€œI couldn't understand what he meant." Lew Chatterley. --- "Something happened between two players which demanded their names being taken. โ€œl did not see it myself. The action I took was on the word of the linesman.โ€ Referee Leo Callaghan.
