MATCH QUOTES

"Ten minutes still remained for play, but at this juncture the referee called the two linesmen together, and, after short consultation, ordered that further play was impossible, and the game came to an abrupt and unsatisfactory termination with the scores - Sheffield Wednesday, three goals; Aston Villa, one goal."
