MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Those were the three worst goals of my life."

Dwight Yorke.

*Birmingham Evening Mail*
Thursday, 6 February 1992

Despite their indifferent League form, Villa have emerged from two absorbing but totally contrasting Cup-ties to book a fifth-round ticket at Swindon on Saturday week.

And anyone lucky enough to have witnessed last-night's heart stopping victory over dogged Derby will be clamouring for front row seats at the County Ground.

In terms of artistic interpretation, this display wasn't in the same class as last month's graceful exhibition at Tottenham.

But if the White Hart Lane show was one for the purists, the close confines of a packed Baseball Ground provided the perfect setting for a thrilling, chilling English cup-tie.

The action was fast, furious and frantic, with barely time to catch breath.

Anyone who dared to look away for a moment was in danger of losing the whole thread.

It was even difficult to distinguish the hero from the villain, with hat-trick star Dwight Yorke also failing twice from the penalty spot to leave a pulsating encounter balanced on a knife edge.

Indeed, the bad guys almost outnumbered the goodies with Polish full back Dariusz Kubicki sent off for two bookable offences.

Yet the match was all the more enthralling for it's darker aide. Mistakes were in plentiful supply, even from the normally unruffled Paul McGrath, but no-one was complaining after such gripping entertainment.

Derby snatched a fifth minute lead. Menacing lan Ormondroyd and Martin Chalk combined to set up Ted McMinn on the left, and the menacing winger's leftfoot drive looped goalwards off Les Sealey's legs, with ex-Holte Ender Phil Gee nodding home as the ball crossed
