MATCH QUOTES

"The game went much more in favour of the Rovers as the end approached. There was some foul play. The referee walked to both linesmen and the result of his consultation was that a penalty was given. This was taken twice by Booth, as on the first occasion George ran off his mark, but the chance was missed both times. In the scrummage the Villa escaped with a corner. Just on time the Rovers took a corner, and before the whistles blew the Villa goal had another narrow escape."
