Cherries picked off...

Cherries picked off...

On this day in 1972, a crowd of 48,110 – then a record for the old Third Division – packed into Villa Park for our top-of-the-table clash against Bournemouth.

Ted MacDougall gave the Cherries an interval lead with a diving header but second-half goals from Geoff Vowden and Andy Lochhead secured a vital 2-1 win for Vic Crowe’s side.
