ON THIS DAY

Villa lose for a fifth time in nine games under Graham Taylor and scarcely believably former Villa malcontents Benito Carbone and Ugo Ehiogu both score for the second time this season against their old club whilst Villa fall to 10th in the table - their lowest position since the start of the season. For Carbone it's his second goal against Villa and second win against his old side for two different sides this season. Meanwhile Goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel made his final appearance for Villa aged 38 before joining Manchester City on a free transfer in July 2002. Schmeichel had made 36 appearances for Villa and became the first goalkeeper to score for the club.
