BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) Danny Ings came on as a substitute and scored late to help Aston Villa salvage a 1-1 draw against relegation-threatened Wolverhampton in the Premier League on Wednesday.

The veteran forward split two defenders and ran onto a ball over the top from Tyrone Mings before beating Jose Sa in the 78th minute at Villa Park.

In stoppage time, Leon Bailey collected another long ball and got past Sa but shot wide right. The Jamaica international was in tears after the whistle and was helped off the ground by teammates.

Daniel Podence scored early for Wolverhampton, which would have moved out of the bottom three with a victory.

The Portuguese winger slipped past Douglas Luiz and curled a left-footed shot into the far corner past goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, back in the starting lineup after helping Argentina win the World Cup, in the 12th minute.

Matheus Nunes then had a chance to double the lead but Martinez charged out and saved a low shot with his right leg.
