Football: Villa suffer more home frustration in Swansea draw

BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom (AFP) - Aston Villa endured another frustrating outing on home turf as Swansea hit back to rescue a 1-1 draw at Villa Park on Saturday.

Paul Lambert's team were on course for a rare success in front of their own fans when Gabriel Agbonlahor opened the scoring early in the first half.

But Swansea's Roland Lamah equalised before the interval and the hosts were unable to snatch a winner.

That meant Villa have now won just one of their last seven home matches, although the draw did at least end a miserable run of four consecutive Premier League defeats.
