Swansea City snatch late draw against Aston Villa
SWANSEA City scrambled a late draw against Aston Villa at the Liberty as Danny Graham struck deep into injury time to rescue a point.
It looked as though Michael Laudrup's side were going to end up pointless despite producing one of their most dominant first half performances of the season.
Swansea took the lead when Wayne Routledge rounded Brad Guzan and netted after nine minutes, but missed a glut of other chances.
Routledge saw a shot saved after a flick over Matthew Lawton put him through on goal early on and Michu twice struck the post in the opening 27 minutes.

Graham and Angel Rangel wasted other opportunities in the first half before Villa equalised.
Andreas Weimann raced onto Christian Benteke's pass and fired past Michel Vorm and into the bottom corner.
Swansea found opportunities harder to come by after the interval, but had calls for a penalty turned down when referee Mark Halsey decided the ball had struck Joe Bennett's hand outside the area.
Villa had their own claims for a penalty six minutes from time when Nathan Dyer tangled with Weimann, and this time Halsey pointed to the spot.
Benteke sent Vorm the wrong way to score and Swansea seemed destined for defeat.
But as the clock ticked down, Graham struck through a crowded penalty area to level.
