ON THIS DAY

Dwight Yorke scores his fifth goal in five top flight games but Ron Atkinson's Villa lose for the first time in six Division One matches as Gordon Cowans made the final appearance of his second spell with Villa aged 33 before moving to Blackburn Rovers on a free transfer. Cowans' playing days for Villa were not over however as he would return to the club in the summer of 1993 for a third spell in claret and blue.
