Dion saves our blushes

Dion saves our blushes

On this day in 2001, Villa edged to a 1-0 win over Reading in a third-round League Cup tie.

It wasn’t the most convincing of performances by John Gregory’s side but Dion Dublin’s goal secured a passage to round four. 

Villa were again drawn at home but a 1-0 defeat by Sheffield Wednesday signalled the end of our interest in the competition.
