Man City settle for draw at Villa

Manchester City's Craig Bellamy

Manchester City have clawed their way into the top four of the Premier League with a 1-1 draw against Aston Villa.

Former City captain Richard Dunne headed Villa into the lead early on, and almost netted a second.

But after the break Craig Bellamy made the most of an Emmanuel Adebayor cross to equalise for the visitors.

City kept the upper hand in the closing stages of the match, but ultimately had to settle for a single point in their Premier League campaign.
