Jagielka own-goal rescues Villa point

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa's faint hopes of achieving Champions League football suffered another setback despite Everton defender Phil Jagielka's injury-time own goal rescuing them a point from a 2-2 draw.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill had challenged his side to win their remaining six games to give them a realistic hope of overhauling Manchester City and Tottenham in the race for fourth place in the Barclays Premier League.

But they had to settle for a point after cancelling out Tim Cahill's double with Gabriel Agbonlahor's 50th goal for the club and Jagielka's late helping hand.
