ON THIS DAY

One step forward two steps back under Steve Bruce with a home capitulation against Middlesbrough having failed to beat them two games previously with a full strength squad.

Bruceโ€™s mass change of personnel fail to spark Villa and a stutter and selection confusion once again prove the hallmark of this season.

Midfielder Jordan Lyden made his final appearance for Villa aged 21 before being released by the club in March 2019. Lyden had signed professional forms in July 2014 after coming through the youth team ranks and made 8 appearances for the club.

Forward Ross McCormack made his final appearance for Villa aged 31 before being released by the club in June 2019. McCormack had cost Villa ยฃ12,870,000 from Fulham but made just 24 appearances and scored 3 goals.

Winger Corey Blackett-Taylor made his final appearance for Villa aged 19 before being released by the club in July 2019. Blackett-Taylor had signed professional forms in July 2016 after coming through the youth team ranks and made 2 appearances for the club.

MATCHDAY QUOTES

"It was the third time in the past four games that Steve Bruceโ€™s side have failed to score."

*BBC Sport*
Tuesday, 19 September 2017

*Patrick Bamford scored twice as Middlesbrough beat 10-man Aston Villa to reach the fourth round of the Carabao Cup.*

The forward netted from the penalty spot after being brought down by Tommy Elphick, who was shown a second yellow card.

Bamford, who hit the crossbar with a header in the first half, nodded in his second with 23 minutes remaining.

Villa defender Elphick earlier had an effort of his own ruled out.

Jake Doyle-Hayes shot, comfortably saved by Boro goalkeeper Dimi Konstantopoulos, was one of Villaโ€™s best efforts.

It was the third time in the past four games that Steve Bruceโ€™s side have failed to score.
