Villa make 18th place their own, six points clear of the relegation places, after Tommy Docherty delivers a fourth successive League win to transform a side cut adrift at the bottom just five second division games previously. Barrie Hole repays Dochertyโ€™s faith with his latest goal to beat mid table Huddersfield but Villa end the game with ten men after Charlie Aitken is carried off with a damaged blood vessel in his chest.
