MATCH SUMMARY

Villa survive another below par first half and the loss from the field of play of John Gidman for five minutes as Sammy Morgan hands them the lead before the interval. The second half starts with a poor refereeing decision as Morgan has a second disallowed and that seems to motivate a previously shot shy Villa to destroy Hull and record their first win of the season and first win under Ron Saunders in fine style - hitting five second half goals to beat Hull 6-0.
