MATCHDAY QUOTES

"After this each goal was assailed in turn, both custodians being called upon to save.

"No further goals being scored, the match ended in a draw of 1 goal each."

*Birmingham Daily Post*
Tuesday, 18 March 1890

STOKE V. ASTON VILLA.

This deferred League match was played at Stoke-on-Trent yesterday.

The weather was somewhat showery, but there was a good attendance of spectators.

Stoke kicked off with the wind against them, but they at once proceeded to attack the Villa goal, and by a capital shot Gee put the ball through the posts after about six minutes' play.

Aston quickly retaliated, but the ball was sent behind.

Stoke made a good run up the left wing and placed the Aston goal in jeopardy, but the backs cleared very cleverly.

Maintaining the pressure Stoke secured a corner, but it proved unproductive.

The visitors next invaded; but the Stoke defence proved too strong, and they were repulsed.

After some further play in favour of Stoke the latter put the ball through a second time, but the point was disallowed for offside.

Nothing further of note occurred, and at half-time Stoke led by 1 goal to 0.

On the change of ends taking place Aston attacked, and Rowley was called on to save two hot shots, and he proved equal to the occasion.

Stoke then got possession of the ball, and, invading the Aston territory, pressed heavily for some time; but they were unable to break through the defence.

At length Aston broke away, and Allen equalised the scoring.

After this each goal was assailed in turn, both custodians being called upon to save.

No further goals being scored, the match ended in a draw of 1 goal each.
