Richard Dunne scored a brilliant header against his former club but Craig Bellamy denied him the matchwinning glory with a second-half leveller for Manchester City as they drew 1-1 with Aston Villa.[LNB]Dunne had given Villa a half-time lead with his first goal since his £6million move from Eastlands, outjumping former Villa midfielder Gareth Barry.[LNB]But Bellamy rescued a deserved point for Mark Hughes' side midway through the second period.[LNB]Former City skipper Dunne headed Villa into the lead after 14 minutes, getting on the end of Stephen Warnock's corner to climb above Barry and head back across Shay Given.[LNB]Dunne went close again, while Emmanuel Adebayor threatened for City before Bellamy equalised after 67 minutes.[LNB]Shaun Wright-Phillips released Stephen Ireland who then played the ball into Adebayor down the channel, and he cut the ball back to Bellamy who hammered home from 12 yards.
