Vic Crowe's Villa draw successive League games for the first time this season and have now failed to beat neighbours Walsall both home and away this season and make it twenty three wins, five draws and six defeats in division three so far this campaign. Despite dropping points for a second consecutive game, Villa's position in the table strengthens as the teams around them lose. Villa, with one defeat in the last twenty games, (played 34, points 51) remained ahead of Bournemouth (played 35, points 49) and their next opponents Brighton and Hove Albion (played 34, points 45).
