1995: Tommy Johnson scores his first Aston Villa goals

Tommy Johnson opened his account for Aston Villa with a 16-minute hat-trick as Brian Little's side beat Wimbledon 7-1.

Wimbledon initially took the lead thanks to Warren Barton, but the visitors' excitement was short-lived.

Alan Reeves levelled the scores a minute later with an own goal, and Johnson then scored three times between the 22nd and 38th minutes.

Dean Saunders added a brace in the second half, his second strike coming from the penalty spot, and Dwight Yorke rounded off the scoring.

Villa's victory moved them two points behind Wimbledon, who were in ninth.
