Late goal denies Villa

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa's faint hopes of securing Champions League football were dealt another blow as Diego Tristan grabbed a late equaliser for West Ham in a 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

Villa had looked on course for their first win in 11 games when fit-again Emile Heskey broke the deadlock early in the first period.

But Tristan levelled matters with six minutes remaining when he headed in a shot from Kieron Dyer which was going wide.
