Aston Villa played out a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St. James’ Park in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

John Carew has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the draw between Newcastle United and Aston Villa this evening.

Villa played out a 1-1 draw with fellow relegation candidates Newcastle away from home at St. James’ Park in the Premier League.

Fabricio Coloccini put the Magpies in the lead in the 38th minute, and Jordan Ayew scored a stunning goal just past the hour mark to rescue a point for the Villans.

Former Villa striker Carew was following the game, and he was happy to see Remi Garde’s side pick up a point in their battle to avoid the drop to the Championship at the end of the season.

Over the course of the 90 minutes at St. James’ Park, visitors Villa had 53% of the possession, took 10 shots of which seven were on target, and earned seven corners.

Hosts Newcastle had 47% of the possession, took eight shots of which four were on target, and earned three corners.

Villa are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with just seven points from 17 matches.
