Late own goal lifts Villa into fourth

Published Add your comment

A late Kamil Zayatte own goal saw Aston Villa snatch a barely-deserved 1-0 victory at Hull on Tuesday night.

Villa had been frustrated throughout a drab Barclays Premier League encounter until Zayatte turned in Ashley Young's cross in the 88th minute.

In a dramatic conclusion, Hull thought they had been awarded a penalty but referee Steve Bennett changed his mind following consultation with his assistant.
