Villa played out a 1-1 draw with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League.
The Villans took the lead on the stroke of half time through Joleon Lescott, but conceded the equaliser on 73 minutes when Oriol Romeu found the target.
Former Villa defender McGrath was pleased with the point, but he did not get his wish regarding Bournemouth’s match against Chelsea.
The Cherries defeated Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge, thanks to Glenn Murray's headed goal in the 82nd minute.
Well done Villa a point away from home at St Mary's is a good result at least it stops rot !! Now let's all cheer for Chelsea :-)— Paul McGrath (@Paulmcgrath5) December 5, 2015
Villa remain at the bottom of the Premier League table, having managed to pick up just six points from 15 matches.
Remi Garde’s side are as many as seven points behind Bournemouth, who are currently 17th in the standings.
The Villans will return to Premier League action next weekend when they take on Arsenal at Villa Park.
