A Gabriel Agbonlahor goal in first-half stoppage time sends Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers into the break tied at 1-1.

Gabriel Agbonlahor found the net in first-half stoppage time to send Aston Villa and Queens Park Rangers into the break tied at 1-1.

The visitors came close to securing an early lead when Christopher Samba got his head to a corner and forced an impressive stop out of Villa keeper Brad Guzan.

Guzan denied Samba again two minutes later, beating clear his bending, 12-yard strike to keep the scoreline at 0-0.

However, it did not remain that way for long. Villa lost possession inside their own half and QPR punished them dearly through Jermaine Jenas, who bundled the ball past Guzan after he had spilled Bobby Zamora's initial effort.

Harry Redknapp's side were by far the better team, but it was Villa who landed the next blow. Agbonlahor struck from close range in first-half stoppage time to make it level at the break.
