Villa, once again adopting a safety first, defensive game on the road, are dominated by promotion rivals Middlesbrough but manage to record a second successive goalless draw. Villaโ€™s latest stalemate - their third in five unbeaten second division games - leaves them still joint first in the table alongside a gaggle of four clubs - Bolton, Sunderland, Bristol City and opponents Boro.
