ON THIS DAY

Tony Barton's Villa beat Norwich at Villa Park to make it three wins, one draw and one defeat in five League games so far this season. Scoring the winner is League and European Cup winning captain Dennis Mortimer - a player whom Herbert Douglas Ellis had insisted was to be sold in order to "cut costs".
