The Cherries visit Aston Villa on Sunday for the 4th Round of the FA Cup with a large following of their fans.

It will probably bring back memories to some of that brilliant diving header by Ted Macdougall back in 1972 in an important league game at Villa Park which Villa ran out 2-1 winners with the winner coming from Andy Lochead.
