Four for Chris Nicholl!

Four for Chris Nicholl!

On this day in 1976, Chris Nicholl achieved the amazing feat of scoring all four goals as Villa drew 2-2 against Leicester City at Filbert Street.

The central defender twice had the misfortune of conceding own goals which put the home side ahead but on each occasion he came up with equalisers, his second goal coming just four minutes from time.
