Sinking the Blues

Sinking the Blues

On this day in 1980, Villa supporters savoured a 3-0 home victory over Birmingham City in the Second City derby.

But this win was about more than just bragging rights. 

It completed a double for Ron Saunders’ men, who had won 2-1 at St Andrew’s in October, and also secured two important points for a team that would go on to win the First Division title.

David Geddis, who made only nine league appearances that season, was on target twice against Blues, with Gary Shaw netting the other goal.
