ON THIS DAY

Tammy Abraham became the first player to score in 7 successive home games since Pongo Waring in 1932-33 as Villa finally got back to winning ways after 6 games without a victory.

Former Villa centre back James Collins lined up for Ipswich having originally signed to play for Villa for the season as a free agent. Having joined Villa for a second time however, Collins injured himself in training and was unable to take part in the early stages of the campaign. As a result Collins ripped up his contract so as not to leave Villa with a financial burden. A leader on and off the pitch.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Dean Smith* โ€We could have won 5-0. It didnโ€™t matter as it was about getting a win at home, which we thoroughly we deserved. It was comfortable at 2-0 until Freddie Sears stuck one away in the top corner. Then we had a five-minute spell when there was a bit of panic trying to get over the line. โ€œI was disappointed it wasnโ€™t emphatic as it should have been. Tammy should have been walking away with his 21st and 22nd goals of the season, while John McGinn should also have scored a couple. We had a number of chances and had we been more clinical we would have made the game more comfortable.โ€
