Ritchie De Laet becomes the latest first team player to be sent out on loan by Steve Bruce joining Jed Steer, Andrรฉ Green and Tommy Elphick unavailable for selection.

Centre forward Tammy Abraham made his Villa debut aged 20 after joining on a season long loan from Chelsea.

Winger Yannick Bolasie made his Villa debut aged 29 as a 77โ€™ substitute after joining on a season long loan from Everton.

MATCH QUOTES

*Villa boss Steve Bruce* โ€I think we deserved the equaliser. I thought we had a blatant, stonewall penalty. That changes games, goals change games. It wouldโ€™ve been harsh if we had got beat. โ€œHourihane has just reminded everybody of what a good free-kick taker he is. Iโ€™m encouraged by Tammy Abrahamโ€™s performance, but itโ€™s going to take time. Weโ€™ve practically built the team again which is going to be difficult. โ€œWeโ€™ve stuck at it and got another late equaliser which is now three out of seven games, so it shows thereโ€™s resilience in our side.โ€
