Gabriel Agbonlahor propelled Aston Villa towards Barclays Premier League safety and edged West Ham closer to relegation with the injury-time winner in a 2-1 victory at Upton Park.

The Hammers had taken the lead inside two minutes with a strike from Robbie Keane but Villa wrestled back control with Darren Bent's header shortly before the interval.

West Ham goalkeeper Robert Green pulled off a string of top-class saved to keep his side in the game but Villa snatched a deserved victory with a header from substitute Agbonlahor in added time.
