Aston Villa faced FA Cup winners Spurs on a sunny day at Wembley in an
entertaining game that saw the clubs share the FA Charity Shield.
Peter Withe won a free-kick on the right
when he was fouled by Graham Roberts and from it, the ball dropped in
the box for Allan Evans to shoot from the left side of the goal, but Ray
Clemence was behind it and grabbed it at the second attempt before the
Villa defender could get there again.
From a Villa corner, Clemence dropped the ball in the six yard box when
trying to catch it over his head, leaving Withe the simple task of
putting the ball into an empty net to hand the Midlanders the lead.
Miller won ball on halfway, played to Ardiles, onto Archibald, who
rolled the ball under his foot behind him to return it to Ossie. His
little pass to his right found Falco on the edge of the D and he took a
touch on the stretch with his left foot, before turning to hit it with
his right foot over Rimmer and into the roof of the net from 20 yards
Into the second half, Chris Hughton took the ball off Withe after the
Villa manís loose control and moving forward from the centre-circle in
the opponentís half, he swept the ball left to Tony Galvin. The wingerís
cross was cleared, Mabbutt mis-hit his volley and it came out to Hoddle,
who passed to Galvin on the left side of the box. This time, he pulled
it back short and Falco shot with his left foot across Rimmer, who got a
hand to it, but could only help it into the net.
With Gibson and Morley opening up the right side of our defence, Morley
lifted a high cross to the far post and under pressure from Geddis,
Clemence could not get to the ball that dropped onto Witheís head to
level the score at 2-2. The Spurs keeper needed treatment after the goal
and although it appeared that he was impeded, the referee gave no
Another up and under into the box, this time from Bremner, caused
problems for Clemence, who this time got a hand on it to take it onto
the crossbar and over the top.
