Kozak continues fine pre-season form with Aston Villa brace

Aston Villa striker Libor Kozak has continued his fine pre-season form with a brace in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Wolves in a friendly on Tuesday.

Czech Republic striker Kozak gave Villa the lead on two occasions only for the hosts to bounce back through goals from Dave Edwards and Benik Afobe.

It took just six minutes for Kozak to give Villa the lead as he brilliantly rifled the ball past Carl Ikeme from 20 yards.

The hosts equalised on 72 minutes when Edwards turned home Dominic Iorfa's cross at the near post.

Villa retook the lead four minutes later, with Kozak reacting quickly to guide Callum Robinson's cross into the net.

In the closing stages, though, Wolves again levelled through former Arsenal striker Afobe.

Villa's latest signing Jordan Ayew was among the substitutes for Tim Sherwood's side.
