Agbonlahor is Villa hero

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor settled the Birmingham derby with a late winner for Martin O´Neill´s side in a pulsating clash at St Andrews that they edged 2-1.

The England Under-21 international had cleared a Liam Ridgewell header off the line 60 seconds earlier and then charged down the pitch to turn home Ashley Young´s cross.

A Ridgewell own goal had given Villa the lead but Mikael Forssell came off the bench to level matters before Agbonlahor settled the outcome with three minutes remaining.
