On this day in 2008, Villa were 2-0 winners over Reading at the Madejski Stadium.
Our first visit to the Premiership new boys 12 months earlier had ended in a 2-0 defeat, with Steve Sidwell – later to become a Villa player – on target twice. But goals from Ashley Young and Marlon Harewood ensured it was a happier second visit. Villa went on to finish sixth, while the Royals were relegated.
