MATCH SUMMARY

Villa record a seventeenth draw of the campaign and the first welcome one as a point is enough to ensure their Premier League survival despite winning only seven of thirty seven under Alex McLeish.

KEY MAN

Ciaran Clark celebrates putting Villa in front but a familiar story unfolds as they are pegged back for their seventeenth draw of the season - although that proves enough to secure their top flight status for 2012-13 however unlikely it is that Alex McLeish will still be in post to enjoy it, Sunday, 6 May 2012.

ON THIS DAY

Alex McLeish's Villa draw for the seventeenth time in 37 Premier League games but it is enough to ensure that, despite dropping to 16th in the table, Villa secure top flight football for 2012-13 with a game to spare, just as they had done in 2010-11.

MATCH QUOTES

"Villa set an unwanted club record with only four wins all term, and even a victory at Norwich next weekend will not prevent their lowest points tally in 20 years as members of the Premier League."
