Jonathan Kodija finally ended his English Championship scoring drought as Aston Villa held Ipswich Town to a 1-1 draw

The Cote d’Ivoire international had failed to find the net in his last 15 league fixtures but on Saturday, he ended his run of futility.

But in the 21st minute against Ipswich at Portman Road, the 28-year-old headed home a cross from John McGinn to hand his side the lead.

Villa’s lead didn’t last long as Trevoh Chalobah equalised for the hosts 15 minutes after Kodjia’s goal as the encounter ended in a draw.

Ghana international, Albert Adomah was handed a starter’s role but was replaced with Rushian Hepburn-Murphy in the 78th minute.

30-year-old Egypt wing back, Ahmed El Mohamady was on parade for the entire duration of the encounter against 10-man hosts

With the away point, Steve Bruce’s Villans climbed to fourth in the Championship with seven points and they host Brentford in their next game on August 22.
