"TWO superb goals from Southampton ... made up for a first half penalty miss by Paul Rideout against his former club Aston Villa"

*Aberdeen Press and Journal*
Wednesday, 30 August 1989

TWO superb goals from Southampton midfielders Glenn Cockerill and Jimmy Case made up for a first half penalty miss by Paul Rideout against his former club Aston Villa in the Barclays League Division 1 last night.

Rideout missed from the spot after Rodney Wallace was brought down in the fourth minute by Bernie Gallacher.

Cockerill volleyed a cross from Danny Wallace past Nigel Spink, and 13 minutes later Case hit a brilliant shot into the top left hand comer from 30 yards.

Five minutes from the end David Platt pulled a goal back for Aston Villa, converting a pass from Adrian Heath.
