ON THIS DAY

Villa's season descends further into the mire as David O'Leary sees his side lose a second successive game and record a seventh game without a win. As a result, Villa fall to 18th in the table - their lowest position of the season - and into the relegation places as they are in real danger of out under-performing even the torrid 2002-03 campaign. Villa were desperately in need of inspiration but there was simply no-one of that calibre available in a largely workmanlike squad if talisman Juan Pablo รngel was not firing.
