Aston Villa 1-1 Newcastle 17/09/2011 (Premier League)
Aston Villa and Newcastle both remain comfortably in the top half of the table following a 1-1 draw at Villa Park. Gabby Agbonlahor’s 11th-minute strike put the hosts in front, the striker holding off Fabricio Coloccini before rifling in from close range following Barry Bannan’s cross. Leon Best levelled the scores 13 minutes into the second period, fluffing his initial chance by heading straight at Shay Given then making no mistake when the ball bounced back to him.
