Welcome back Dion

Welcome back Dion

On this day in 2000, goals from Benito Carbone and George Boateng gave Villa a 2-0 home win over Derby County to maintain sixth place in the Premiership table.

The biggest cheer of all, though, was reserved for Dion Dublin, who made his comeback after suffering a broken neck just before Christmas. The striker was given a rousing reception when he replaced Carbone in the 80th minute.
