Aston Villa 1-1 Middlesbrough Highlights
Gareth Barry’s penalty rescued a point for Aston Villa against Middlesbrough.
The England star struck home from the spot in the second half after Luke Young was harshly judged to have handled Ashley Young’s shot. Stewart Downing had given the visitors a deserved lead when he latched onto Zat Knight’s poor clearance and struck low past Scott Carson’s right hand. Carson was the busier of the keepers though Boro had Mido to thank for a goal-line clearance from John Carew. Middlesbrough dominated the first half, Robert Huth’s early header over the bar signalling the visitors’ intent.
