MATCH SUMMARY

Without a League win in seven, Villa sit third in the table three points behind but with a game in hand over second placed Fulham and five adrift of leaders Preston. Villa’s defeat at Belle Vue to relegation threatened Doncaster means they are no longer in control of their own promotion destiny and need those above them to slip up if they are going to return to the second tier at the first attempt.
