MATCH SUMMARY

Villa lose a third consecutive League game after Graham Turner decides to give Gordon Cowans and Steve McMahon "the day off". As curious as that is it opens the opportunity for a 17 year old winger named Tony Daley to make his debut. Despite the about turn in form - five defeats and seven wins in their last fifteen League games - Villa remain 10th.
