Hull City 0-1 Aston Villa Highlights

Aston Villa regained fourth place in the table after a late own goal by Kamil Zayatte gave them victory.

Nicky Barmby had the ball in the net in the first half after Brad Friedel dropped a cross but the goal was ruled out for a foul on the goalkeeper.

0-1 Zayatte OG 88′

Villa sneaked the win when Zayatte turned Ashley Young’s cross into his own net with two minutes left.

Hull thought they had won a penalty for a handball by Ashley Young in injury time but the decision was reversed.

Referee Steve Bennett initially looked to have given a spot-kick but changed his mind after consulting with his assistant.

It might have been a cruel blow for Hull, but replays showed the ball hit only the bar and not the player’s hand after it had looped goalwards off Luke Young.
