ON THIS DAY

Paul Lambert's Villa lose heavily, comprehensively and deservedly to League Two side Bradford as the season lurches from disaster to embarrassment. Another terrible defensive performance is brought into acute focus as two experienced defenders return to the club from loan spells only to be placed in the infamous 'bomb squad' of first team players not to be considered for duty; a policy started by Gรฉrard Houllier but taken to new damaging levels by Lambert. Meanwhile, forward Graham Burke made his final appearance for Villa aged 19 before moving on to Notts County on a free transfer in July 2015. Burke had made 2 appearances for Villa since signing professional forms with the club in July 2011.

"The Bantams terrorised Villa in the air throughout and it was no surprise when Rory McArdle doubled their lead with a powerful header 13 minutes from time."
