Published Add your comment

Youssouf Mulumbu sealed 10-man West Brom's first win over Aston Villa for 26 years as they came from behind to claim a 2-1 victory in a pulsating Barclays Premier League derby at the Hawthorns.

An own goal from Abdoulaye Meite gave Villa an early lead before Peter Odemwingie levelled for the Baggies with his 14th goal of the campaign.

Albion midfielder Paul Scharner was sent off after 62 minutes for two bookable offences but Mulumbu netted the winner with six minutes remaining.
