On Monday, in the Premier League, Aston Villa drew with Nottingham Forest by 1-1 with an equalizer goal from Ashley Young. Nottingham’s Emmanuel Dennis scored the first goal and led the display by 1-0 for his team, but they failed to get the three points they craved.
Nottingham, after losing their five-match previously, this draw against Aston Villa lifted them off the bottom of the table. Steven Gerrard, Villa’s coach, was also frustrated as his team again labored in the final third.
Ashley Young’s sensational strike canceled Emmanuel Dennis’s opener and saved his team from going near the relegation stage. After this draw, Villa stands at 16th with nine points, while Nottingham stands 19th in the relegation stage with only five points.
The match was full of drama, as any point can change into a victory for one team, but it ended with a draw, and it was Villa’s unbeaten run to four matches.
Gerrard said I do not want to sit here and talk about four games unbeaten because it’s not enough. He said the last two performances, we need to be taking maximum points rather than just the one, so there is a lot of frustration. Moreover, Gerrard said I had challenged the forward players to give us more because I think up until that point, there’s not much wrong.
Cooper said we need to focus on the positives, we are off the bottom of the league, and that’s a psychological bit of progress.
In the 1-1 draw between Villa and Nottingham, Emmanuel Dennis scored the first goal in the 15th minute, and in answer, Ashley Young scored the second goal in the 22nd minute and snatched the victory from Nottingham.
