ON THIS DAY

Villa started the match with only 8 players on the field due to a dense mist around the ground preventing the team's arrival.

Following a delayed arrival of the majority of the Villa team, the referee deems play should commence 8v11.

After five minutes had elapsed a Cox and Devey joined the play but Villa are forced to played the fixture 10v11 as Dawson can not make it through the confitions.

Playing with 10 men on a pitch of the heaviest variety, that would render Villa's style of play impossible even in an 11v11 match, inevitably leads to defeat.

Ironically, Villa's previous fixture had seen Derby arrive with 10 men, before being allowed to field 11 from kick off by use of a reserve, and then allowing a 12th man to take the field of play after one of the original line up was injured. No such fortune was afforded Villa at Turf Moor.
