Villa claim derby win

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the only goal to settle a scrappy derby against Birmingham at St Andrew's.

Agbonlahor struck with six minutes remaining to lift Martin O'Neill's side into sixth place in the Barclays Premier League.

City had dominated for much of the second half but failed to create anything of note to trouble Villa keeper Brad Friedel and they paid for their lacklustre display when Agbonlahor pounced to score from close range.
