Villa earn vital point

Published Add your comment

Ten-man Tottenham's hopes of securing an automatic Champions League spot were dented by struggling Aston Villa who edged closer to Barclays Premier League survival following a hard-fought 1-1 draw.

Ciaran Clark's deflected shot gave Villa a half-time lead and then Spurs had defender Danny Rose sent off early in the second half for a challenge on ex-Tottenham player Alan Hutton.

Emmanuel Adebayor levelled from the penalty spot for Harry Redknapp's side but they are now a point behind third placed Arsenal going into the final day of the season.
