ON THIS DAY

Villa score a crucial away goal through Ian Taylor but concede in the last minute to leave the tie in the balance. Meanwhile, goalkeeper Stefan Postma made his Villa debut aged 26 after joining from De Graafschap for ยฃ2,000,000 earlier this month.

In less positive news, Graham Taylorโ€™s clear out of the Gregory era team continued as 30 year old midfielder Steve Stone was shown the door and followed Paul Merson to Portsmouth on a free transfer.
