Villa lose to the rebranded Small Heath and now have seven losses in their last eleven matches to make it twelve wins, three draws and nine defeats in twenty four division one games so far this season.

Meanwhile, full back Albert Evans made his final Villa appearance aged 31 before moving on to West Bromwich Albion in October 1907.
