Carr drives Villa to semis

Carr drives Villa to semis

On this day in 1996, Franz Carr scored his only goal for Villa – but it could hardly have been more important.

The former Nottingham Forest player barely played during his brief spell with Villa, but he was on target in the 27th minute against his former club to clinch a 1-0 victory in an FA Cup quarter-final at the City Ground.
