  4. Post update

    FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    That point moves Villa out of the Championship relegation zone.

    The Villans remain unbeaten at home this season but crucially have won just one of their opening 12 games.

    Steve Bruce knows just how big a challenge he has if he is to earn another promotion from this league.

  5. Post update

    FT: Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Aston Villa defender James Chester tells Sky Sports: "I think the way the second half went it was a good point.

    "It seems to be the story of our season so far that we have one good half and one bad half.

    "I've played under Steve Bruce and won promotion. There's plenty of games to go and I'm confident he can get us going in the right direction.

    Wolves skipper Danny Batth tells Sky Sports: "We finished on top and we felt there were some things that could have gone our way."

  6. FULL-TIME - Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Wolves fans

    It finishes level at Villa Park but how Wolves have not won this game I do not know.

    The visitors hammered Steve Bruce's men in the second half but wasted a number of good openings and failed to make their dominance count.

    Villa took the lead in the first half through Jonathan Kodjia's penalty but Helder Costa levelled for Wolves with a penalty of his own.

  7. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    We're into the final minute of stoppage time.

    In the circumstances this would be a decent point for the hosts.

  8. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    The corner comes to nothing and Villa have still not had a shot this half.

  9. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Villa have a corner as we enter four minutes of injury-time.

  10. 'Wolves have wasted an awful lot of chances'

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Villa Park

    "You'd think, given the way Wolves have played in the second half, there'd be only one winner of this - but they have now wasted an awful lot of chances!

    "And this is a Steve Bruce side they're playing against. Any team under his command keeps right on to the end of the road..."

    Jack Grealish

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    The visitors bring on Joe Mason for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.

    The Iceland international has led the line well without ever really looking like scoring.


    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Crunching foul by Dave Edwards on Jack Grealish give Villa a free-kick 30 yards out.

    Not for the first time tonight Albert Adomah's free-kick is easily cleared.

  13. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Another brilliant chance comes and goes for Wolves.

    Alan Hutton fails to clear the ball in the area but the Scot gets back to block Ivan Cavaleiro's goalbound effort.

  14. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Ross McCormack

    We're into the last 10 minutes at Villa Park.

    Wolves will be fuming if they come away from this game with any less than a point.

  15. 'There is no doubt that this is two points lost'

    Brighton 2-2 Preston

    Simon Makienok

    Preston striker Simon Makienok headed a 92nd-minute goal to deny Brighton three points in the Championship.

    Brighton manager Chris Hughton: "The first goal we conceded was poor but I was more disappointed with the second goal because of the timing.

    "We must not give them the opportunity. The big lad [Makienok] was a threat at six foot seven and our game management should have been better.

    "At 2-1 we should be killing the game off and showing more killer instinct as there is always a chance that the opposition will score."

  16. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Nouha Dicko is the latest Wolves player to get behind the Villa defence.

    The ball is running away from him though and he thumps his half volley way off target.


    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Aston Villa are forced into another defensive change as skipper Tommy Elphick makes way for Nathan Baker.

  18. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    How are Wolves not winning this game?!

    Aston Villa keeper Pierluigi Gollini manages to get a glove to Dave Edwards' near post header and the ball is thumped clear by the Villa defence.

    Steve Bruce is cutting a concerned figure.

    Steve Bruce

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    Huge relief for Aston Villa's defenders as Helder Costa is subbed off for Ivan Cavaleiro.

    Costa had been superb this half.

  20. Post update

    Aston Villa 1-1 Wolves

    It's perhaps unsurprising that Villa are looking so disjointed given the changes that have taken place at the club.

    However, you'd have to say Steve Bruce is being shown just why this side have won just once in 11 Championship games this season.
