ON THIS DAY

Villa lose four successive games for the first time in their history having conceded twelve goal in two games and fall to eight in the table - their lowest ever position.

However the result and run of form were overshadowed, as, after playing the first half of the previous game with ten men due to player absence, Villa were once again reduced to ten men after Archie Hunter fell ill at the interval.

The illness Hunter suffered was sadly far more serious than the โ€˜faintingโ€™ episode that was reported as the Villa great had actually suffered a heart attack which would end his football career at the age of 30 having played for Villa since their first FA Cup outing in 1879.
