Leon Bailey missed a golden chance to complete Aston Villa’s comeback against Wolves but both sides had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Villa Park.
Danny Ings had come off the bench to equalise for Unai Emery’s side in a fiery West Midlands derby in which Wolves had looked to be heading out of the relegation zone as a result of Daniel Podence’s fine early goal before Villa rallied in the second half.
Ultimately, Julen Lopetegui’s side were grateful for a point after Bailey rounded goalkeeper Jose Sa in stoppage time only to shoot wide of the near post with the goal gaping. Villa move up to 11th. Wolves stay 19th.
