MATCH SUMMARY

Jack Devey's hat-trick sees Villa return to winning ways, and then some, hitting six for the first time since October, and scoring as many in one game as they had managed in the last eight as their title challenge had begun to falter. With two games to play Villa were now two points behind leaders Liverpool but with a game in hand once again.

MATCH QUOTES

"All interest in the game was practically over, the Villa slowing up, which enabled the strangers to have a bigger share in the proceedings than hitherto. No further points were scored, the final result beingโ€” Aston Villa 6 goals; Notts 1 goal."
