Villa face, and lose, to Notts County for the second successive game, this time in the League to knock Tony Barton's men back to 10th in the table with Peter Withe's penchant for dissent getting him in trouble yet again.

TEAM NEWS

Tony Barton shocks by giving a start to Robert Hopkins (first since March 1980) in what unsurprisingly will prove to be the underwhelming Hopkins' last game, and which will add a chink to the Barton armour just months after winning the European Cup. In addition, Allan Evans, Pat Heard and replace Brendan Ormsby, Ken McNaught and Tony Morley.

Funny story.. Robert Hopkins still talks of the few games he played for Villa and how he was always intent on leaving the League and European Champions for lower league football. Bless. To be fair though, no one would have a clue who on earth he was otherwise.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"I would have sent off the player, anyway, even if he hadn't ready been cautioned.

"He called me a 'โ€” disgrace!' That's foul and abusive language.

โ€œIt will all be included in my report to the FA."

Referee Dave Hutchinson.



"Peter is brainlessโ€”it's as simple as that.

"He's 31 years old and acts more like a lad of 18.

"I'm fed up with his constant rabbiting at referees, whether he's right or wrong.

Peter should start thinking about his teammates, even if he doesn't care what happens to him.

"This game is difficult enough with eleven men, never mind ten!

"He'll be disciplined.

"I felt we had a chance when we pulled a goal back but Peter Withe's sending off floored us.

โ€œHe should know better. He can't leave us with only ten men on the field."

Tony Barton.



"Peter is a mate of mine. But he can expect a rough ride from all the players next week.

"There's no excuse for his behaviour."

Jimmy Rimmer.
