Aston Villa 1-2 Fulham Highlights

Huga Rodallega’s late header defeated Aston Villa and kept alive Fulham’s slim hopes of avoiding Premier League relegation.

Rodallega flicked in Lewis Holtby’s cross four minutes from time to move the Cottagers five points from safety.

Kieran Richardson had given Fulham the lead from the edge of the area before Grant Holt headed level.

Matthew Lowton’s clearance off the line looked to have denied Fulham victory, only for Rodallega to intervene.
