Aston Villa v Spurs

by Football Reporters 2011 - 2012

Aston Villa 1 - 1 Tottenham Hotspur

Ten-man Tottenham’s hopes of securing an automatic Champions League spot were dented by struggling Aston Villa who edged closer to Barclays Premier League survival with a hard-fought point.

Ciaran Clark’s deflected shot gave Villa a half-time lead and then the visitors had defender Danny Rose sent off early in the second half for a challenge on ex-Spurs player Alan Hutton.

Emmanuel Adebayor levelled from the penalty spot for Harry Redknapp’s side but they are now a point behind third-placed Arsenal going into the final weekend of the campaign.

Villa equalled the Premier League record of 17 draws in a campaign held by themselves in 2006-2007 and Newcastle in 2003-2004.
