  • Norwich 1 Aston Villa 2. All over and two goals from Agbonlahor hand Villa three big points. Norwich remain very much in trouble.

  • Villa win a free-kick down by the corner. They look to keep the ball there.

  • Almost three. Weimann races clear, with Ryan Bennett giving up the chase. He looks to square for Benteke, who is denied the chance to tap into an empty net by Bassong. Ryan Bennett booked as Villa line up a corner.

  • So close by Holt to earning a point. Guzan with a rush of blood as he comes to try and meet a Kamara cross. He is beaten to the ball by Holt, but the ball loops inches wide of the post.

  • Jackson sent on in place of Garrido. Norwich stuck in their own half as the clock sticks down. Villa pulling everyone back as they look to hold on for three vital points.

  • Weimann hammers the ball out of the ground. Time-wasting maybe. Norwich looking to make another change. They take an age making it.

  • Poor clearance from Bunn, but Weimann is left in an offside position as the ball is pumped back his way.

  • Four minutes of stoppage time to be played.

  • Surely there is no way back for Norwich now? They don't have long to find a second leveller. They are giving it a go, but Villa looking to shut up shop.

  • GOAL ASTON VILLA - AGBONLAHOR. We might have a very late winner. Agbonlahor again for Villa. He shows great pace to skip away from Bassong and drill across Bunn into the back of the net.

  • First-time pass sent through the middle for Pilkington to chase. He can't quite catch up with the ball and Guzan is able to gather on the edge of his box. Nice idea from the hosts.

  • Johnson goes down after tangling with Westwood. He soon bounces back to his feet. Garrido fires the free-kick long from halfway. Kamara touches the ball on and Holt fires the nod down narrowly past the post.

  • We end up with all three Bennetts on the field, as Elliott Bennett comes on in place of Snodgrass. Warm hand for the Norwich winger as he makes his way from the field.

  • Vlaar gets away with a poor clearance. Looking at the penalty incident again, Joe Bennett first had hold of Snodgrass outside the box. He can have few complaints, though, as he shouldn't have tangled with him at all.

  • Benteke gathers in midfield and turns to face Norwich. He carries the ball too far. Villa remain in possession, but with two banks of four in front of them. Weimann unable to find a way through.

  • Big goal at The Hawthorns, with Wigan having taken the lead against West Brom. Not what those here want to hear. Looking like the basement battle has a few twists left in it yet.

  • Holt hooks a hopeful cross into the six-yard box. As he has pulled wide, there is no-one in there to challenge and Guzan can pluck the ball out of the air. Villa then launch an attack of their own, which comes to nothing.

  • Long throw from Lichaj is cleared by Bassong. As Norwich hammer clear, Guzan races from his box to beat Kamara to the loose ball. Baker then slices a clearance into the stands.

  • Westwood chips the set-piece towards Benteke, but can't find him. Norwich pegged back on the edge of their own box for a moment. Delph breaks forward and slips a pass towards Weimann. He does well to keep the ball in play and win a throw.

  • Lambert looking to add a bit more experience to his midfield with the change. Villa back on the ball, with Joe Bennett moving forward. He wins a free-kick off Snodgrass. He has plenty to say about the decision, but escapes a caution.
