ON THIS DAY

Another high-scoring game at Villa Park following the annihilation of Wimbledon last time out and another 8 goals scored yet the points are shared as Villa let a 4-1 lead slip to a Mark Draper inspired Leicester City.

A cruising Villa side threw away a three goal lead and allowed Leicester to equalise in the final minute, happily the key player in the Leicester side, midfielder Mark Draper, would, by the start of the following season, be lining up in a Villa shirt.

Winger Franz Carr made his Villa debut aged 28 as an 88โ€™ substitute after joining from Leicester City earlier this month for a fee of ยฃ250,000.

Former Villa โ€˜keeper Kevin Poole and former Villa midfielder Garry Parker lined up for Leicester as future Villa defender Simon Grayson also featured.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Mark McGheeโ€™s down and out Leicester City climbed off the canvas last night to snatch a sensation draw against Aston Villa."

*Daily Mirror*
Thursday, 23 February 1995

Mark McGheeโ€™s down and out Leicester City climbed off the canvas last night to snatch a sensation draw against Aston Villa.

Rock bottom city, totally dominated for most of the match and trailing 4-1 with 25 minutes to go, grabbed a stunning injury time leveller through substitute David Lowe that left Villa boss Brian Little absolutely stunned against his old side.

Dean Saunders struck his 18th goal of the season after only six minutes, to spark what looked like becoming a Villa goal-fest, and Steve Staunton capped a brilliant move to claim their second.

Dwight Yorke increased Villaโ€™s lead after 59 minutes, and although Mark Robins narrowed the gap moments later, Tommy Johnsonโ€™s 25 heard lob put Villa firmly in command again after 65 minutes.

Leicester were left chasing shadows, but almost unbelievably, the roof fell in on Villa. Iwan Roberts headed their second in the 77th minutes then three minutes later, Lowe pounced when Mark Bosnich could only parry former Villa star Garry Parkerโ€™s shot.

And no wonder Leicesterโ€™s players danced in delight as Lowe bent to bounce his header past the groping Bosnich in the closing seconds.
