ON THIS DAY

Villa score four away from home, have three goals disallowed and play 70 minutes with 10 men after Daniel Paton leaves the field injured in the first half, to remain 10th in the table.

Villa’s position could have been worse by Sunderland were deducted two points for playing an ineligible player to sit at the foot of the table.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Cowan hit his first hat-trick for the club as the celebrated half back moonlighted in attack for ten man Villa whilst the injury to forward Daniel Paton meant his 20 minute cameo would be his final appearance for Villa.
