Substitute Emile Heskey rescued a point for Aston Villa as his 86th-minute header earned a 1-1 draw against Burnley at Turf Moor.

Burnley captain Steven Caldwell had put his side ahead with a ninth-minute header from Robbie Blake's free-kick.

That looked like being enough until Heskey popped up with four minutes to go to convert James Milner's cross.
