Jonathan Kodjia shoots Aston Villa ahead against Brentford


Jonathan Kodjia joined from Bristol City for a fee which could rise to a Championship record of £15m

Aston Villa were held to a draw for the third Championship home game running as John Egan’s scrambled late equaliser earned Brentford a point.

Villa looked on their way to a comfortable win after Jonathan Kodjia’s stunning first-half left-foot curler, his first goal for the club.

But Dean Smith’s Brentford never lay down and had the character to level.

From Sullay Kaikai’s neat chip to the far post, Villa failed to clear their lines and Egan stole in to equalise.
