Aston Villa snaps losing streak in draw with Swansea
BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) -- Aston Villa ended a four-match losing streak thanks to an unimpressive 1-1 draw with visiting Swansea in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Villa, booed at home on Thursday after losing to Crystal Palace, began positively and was rewarded with its first goal in the first half in the league campaign thanks to Gabriel Agbonlahor's patient shot in the seventh minute.
But Swansea went after an equalizer and came through eight minutes from halftime when Roland Lamah headed in a cross at the far post. Swansea was in charge of the second half but couldn't convert chances and remained without a win for a fifth straight match.
