Angelic performance

Angelic performance

On this day in 2003, Villa secured a League Cup quarter final place for the second year running with a 3-0 win over Crystal Palace.

Gavin McCann’s first competitive goal for the club on 72 minutes was a moment to cherish as was Juan Pablo Angel’s eighth of the season on 80 minutes.

The first, in the 20th minute, was a touch fortuitous as Angel’s shot deflected off player-manager Kit Symons and left goalkeeper Cedric Berthelin flat-footed.

Not that anyone complained as David O’Leary’s men headed through.
