Aston Villa 4-0 Bolton Highlights
Gareth Barry’s brace helped Aston Villa to get their first win in six games and increased Bolton’s relegation fears.
Barry headed in powerfully from six yards out after an excellent run and cross from Ashley Young.
Gabriel Agbonlahor scored from close range after a swift passing move and Villa got a third when Barry’s strike was deflected in by Joey O’Brien.
Marlon Harewood headed in a fourth as Bolton rued earlier missed chances by Heidar Helguson and Danny Guthrie.
The visitors began positively for a side that had gone seven Premier League games without a win.
Villa had fared little better in recent times and were on a five-match winless streak which included losses in their last three league matches.
Villa took the lead when Young’s trickery on the left saw him evade the challenge of Kevin Davies and his pinpoint right-footed cross was met firmly by Barry’s header.
