Chris Baird upstaged his returning team-mate Dimitar Berbatov with the late winner as Fulham defeated Aston Villa 1-0.

Baird got a deft touch to John Arne Riise's near-post corner to beat goalkeeper Brad Guzan and deny Villa what looked increasingly like a battling point.

Fulham had been the better side, with Berbatov in commanding form on his comeback from a hip injury, but they had failed to convert a hatful of chances.
