Aston Villa substitute Nathan Delfouneso scored with his first touch to keep Martin O'Neill's European hopes alive with a well-deserved 2-1 win over Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

David James saved John Carew's penalty before the break after the Norwegian had restored parity following Michael Brown's early opener.

The game looked to be heading towards stalemate but Delfouneso tapped home Emile Heskey's flick on to move Villa above Liverpool into sixth place in the Barclays Premier League.
