West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Aston Villa: Another point for Garde in a dull Midlands Derby

  • Points in three-straight for Villa
  • Baggies shut out for second-straight
  • Midlands Derby a dull one
  • It’s not the first time we’ll say an opponent had far more chances than a Tony Pulis side but failed to win, and it won’t be the last.

    Aston Villa will feel aggrieved to snare only a single point at the Hawthorns, but finish has been a problem all year and remained so in a 0-0 draw on Saturday.

    Remi Garde’s Villans continued to inch forward in an unlikely run toward safety, and are now nine points back of the drop with 13 points. West Brom’s 28 points have them 13th.

    It was another match without a shot on target for Pulis’ Baggies, who were outworked 15-4 in shot attempts.
