MATCH SUMMARY

Villa once again come away with just a point - and remain winless on the road this season with one away game left to play - despite controlling the game, dominating the play and the chances. Missing a second half penalty just before a Chris Nicholl equaliser offered Villaโ€™s best chance yet to break their duck but it was all to no avail.
