  1. I attended this match although being a United supporter. I went with my sisters then boyfriend a City season ticket holder and his best mate a lifelong Vila fan. Stood in the kippax stand I can just remember the 2late City goals to earn a point for the beleaguered City boss Malcolm Allison. The crowd had been voicing their dissatisfaction towards him as the game went on. It was a Dennis Tuert penalty & a Ray Ransom ‘cross shot’ that deflected off villa full back Kenny Swain to wrong foot goalkeeper Jimmy Rimmer for a share of the points.

  2. I was at this game (Villa fan) and I thought we’d made it safe when Withe scored to make it 2-0. A bit of a soft penalty if I remember rightly that Rimmer got very close to. Couldn’t believe we’d thrown away a point when City equalised!! Always loved going to Maine Road.
