Swansea: Danny Graham scored a stoppage-time equaliser to earn Swansea a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday, delivering more heartache to the visitors after their disastrous run of results over the festive period.

After conceding 15 goals in three big losses over Christmas, relegation-threatened Villa looked on course to secure a relieving victory when Christian Benteke converted an 84th-minute penalty at the Liberty Stadium.

However, Graham provided the last touch in a goalmouth scramble four minutes into injury time to grab a deserved point for the Welsh hosts.
