Championship roundup: Onomah earns point for Aston Villa against Bristol City

• Bristol City 1-1 Aston Villa
• Hull City 4-0 Bolton Wanderers

Josh Onomah struck a 64th-minute equaliser to earn Aston Villa a point from a full-blooded Championship clash with Bristol City at Ashton Gate. The on-loan Tottenham midfielder’s well-struck shot from 25 yards took a deflection off Marlon Pack to leave City goalkeeper Frank Fielding grasping at thin air.

Four minutes earlier the hosts had gone in front. Villa failed to clear a free-kick on the edge of their box, awarded for a foul by John Terry on Bobby Reid, and Jamie Paterson pounced to score with a low left-footed shot from 12 yards.

His new side’s draw with Hull City was a broadly disjointed affair with occasional moments of quality and frequent spells of frustration. So, a fairly appropriate introduction to the Championship, then.
