Aston Villa 1 – Hull 1

Aston Villa recorded a home draw on the opening weekend of the Championship, as they were held to a stalemate by Hull.

Villa, tipped to be one of the frontrunners for promotion to the Premier League, took the lead after just seven minutes through Gabby Agbonlahor.

But Hull, who are looking for an instant EPL return after relegation last term, levelled in the 62 minute through Jarrod Bowen.

John Terry’s debut

Much of the optimism surrounding Villa has come after they signed Chelsea icon John Terry in the summer.

After spending almost his entire career at Stamford Bridge, Terry finally left Chelsea after they lifted last season’s Premier League title, while he’s now dropped down to division two.

Highlights v Hull

Terry played the 90 minutes against Hull, and he was exposed a couple of times in the game.

Now 36, it’s been clear for some time that Terry lacks pace, and Hull tried to exploit that on Saturday.

It’s also clear that Terry still has work to do to get Villa’s backline line working off the same page.
