ON THIS DAY

Tommy Docherty's terrible season continues as Villa follow their second win in fourteen with a humiliation at Ninian Park. Docherty makes it two wins, four draws and eight losses in fourteen division two games so far this season. As a result Villa return to the bottom of the table.

Meanwhile, goalkeeper Evan Williams made his final appearance for Villa aged 26 ahead of the end of his loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers.
