Here is how the national media reported on events at Villa Park...

Substitute Danny Ings late equaliser earned Aston Villa a point and denied Wolves an important Premier League victory in their West Midlands derby at Villa Park.

Ings cancelled out Daniel Podences delightful first-half strike as he lifted the ball past Jose Sa after his run behind the defence was picked out by Tyrone Mings superb pass. Podence ensured the visitors capitalised on their purposeful start as the Portuguese forward weaved past Douglas Luiz before curling a 12th-minute opener beyond World Cup-winning goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

Making his first appearance since lifting the World Cup with Argentina last month, Golden Glove winner Martinez was called upon to deny Matheus Nunes at close range as the visitors continued to offer the greater threat. The hosts eventually sparked into action in the final 20 minutes, with Max Kilman heading Ludwig Augustinssons shot off the line before Ings leveller.

But despite relentless pressure they were unable to force a late winner and an emotional Leon Bailey had to be consoled by his team-mates at the full-time whistle after he missed a late chance, shooting wide from an angle after rounding Sa in stoppage time. Its a huge chance. He was crying but it is good, Villa manager Unai Emery, speaking toBBCSport, said on Baileys chance.

If he is crying it is because he was feeling, and to feel moments like that and to have the responsibility is good. I want to help them to take responsibility and do their best.

At the final whistle Leon Bailey lay face down, his head buried in the turf, doubtless replaying his stoppage-time miss over in his mind.

Danny Ings rushed over to drag his distraught Aston Villa teammate to his feet but Bailey pulled his shirt over his eyes and headed down the tunnel in tears. With 15 minutes to play Ings, thrown on as part of a triple substitution, cancelled out Daniel Podences classy opener and in the third of four added second-half minutes Bailey rounded the Wolves goalkeeper, Jos S, but somehow failed to apply the most simple of finishes.

Bailey will not need reminding about the opportunity and Unai Emery was never going to castigate his player. He was crying but its good because he was feeling, Emery said. He was taking responsibility to score and he didnt do it. Im very happy with his commitment and performances. It was good to learn more with him.

Bailey said on Instagram: I feel at blame for not coming away with all 3 points tonight. Its really hard to take and Im very disappointed in myself. Surely will be very difficult to sleep tonight but Ill try to keep my head up.

When Emery and Julen Lopetegui last duelled on the touchline, in La Liga in September, their respective Villarreal and Sevilla sides could not be pulled apart and here the managers had to settle for another point. Emery and Lopetegui both hail from the Basque Country and were appointed to rescue missions in cooler climes at these Midlands rivals within 10 days of each other.

Emiliano Martinez returned to Aston Villa a champion of the world but this was the night when tearful Leon Bailey felt his own had fallen apart.

Deep into stoppage time and with the match heading for a draw, a mix-up in the Wolves defence presented Bailey with an open goal and a chance to give Martinez who was given a superb reception before kick-off and made crucial saves from Matheus Nunes and Rayan Ait-Nouri the perfect homecoming on his first game for Villa since helping Argentina to World Cup glory. Yet incredibly, Bailey steered wide and when the whistle went moments later, the Jamaican was face down on the pitch, sobbing his heart out.

Danny Ings who came on as substitute to equalise late on for Villa and Ollie Watkins eventually walked over to console Bailey and drag him to his feet. Wolves led through Daniel Podences 12th-minute effort and were the better team for an hour.

Villa were booed off at the break but improved after it thanks to boss Unai Emerys substitutions and Bailey may never understand how he failed to give them the victory. Today was a very good match for him. He had three big chances against Liverpool and also a chance in the first five minutes here. He played 90 minutes in this game and it was good to learn more about him.

I can be happy but also disappointed because we have to improve on our performance over the 90 minutes, above all when we have the ball. Both clubs are expected to be very busy during the coming weeks as Emery and counterpart Julen Lopetegui demand improvements to their squad.

Danny Ings rescued a point for poor Aston Villa to dent Wolves bid to climb out of the relegation zone.

The striker cancelled out Daniel Podences opener as the hosts recovered from a below-par first half to grab a 1-1 draw. Wolves were on course for their first back-to-back away wins in the Premier League for a year but were forced to settle for a point and they remain in the relegation zone.

They were well worth their lead but Julen Lopetegui needs wins to haul his side, who have been in the bottom three since October, to safety. Villa sit 11th as Unai Emery continues to enjoy his honeymoon spell and he matched the result when he and Lopetegui met in LaLiga in September when Villarreal drew 1-1 with Sevilla.

It should have been better, though, only forLeon Baileyto miss a glaring chance in stoppage time. Wolves enjoyed a positive start, they were hardly brimming with ideas but did enough to have Villa worried and Ezri Konsa cleared Nathan Collins effort when Emi Martinez back from his World Cup triumph was beaten.

Several corners and deep crosses were tossed into the Villa box, each of them repelled, but the hosts brief resistance broke after 12 minutes when Wolves worked their way through with some style. A cross was only cleared to Podence on the touchline and he swapped passes with Joao Moutinho to wriggle into the area.

Leon Bailey missed a huge chance to complete Aston Villas comeback against Wolves but both sides had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Villa Park.

Danny Ings had come off the bench to equalise for Unai Emerys side in a fiery West Midlands derby. Wolves had looked to be heading out of the relegation zone as a result of Daniel Podences fine early goal before Villa rallied in the second half.

Ultimately, Julen Lopeteguis side were grateful for a point after Bailey rounded goalkeeper Jose Sa only to shoot wide of the near post with the goal gaping. The winger was in tears, distraught when the full-time whistle was blown just seconds later.

Wolves put Villa under pressure from the outset. The breakthrough goal itself was wonderfully worked, Joao Moutinho reversing the pass to Podence who finished superbly into the far corner. Villa had been hugely impressive in defeating Tottenham but this was a different sort of game and with Wolves dominating the ball, the home support became increasingly agitated.

They wanted to see possession and pressing but there was little of either for 45 minutes. Emiliano Martinez, returning to the team following his World Cup win with Argentina, had to make a smart stop to prevent Matheus Nunes from doubling Wolves advantage while the closest Villa came in the first half was Lucas Dignes free-kick that was tipped over.
