  • Fulham are off the bottom of the Premier League table thanks to their first top flight success at Villa Park since 1966. Felix Magath earns his first away win as Cottagers manager after goals from Kieran Richardson and Hugo Rodallega's first league goal for 15 months. Grant Holt had levelled with his first Villa goal, but it the Cottagers who picked up three vital points to keep their hopes of survival alive.

  • Ron Vlaar hammers the ball out of play as Fulham manager Felix Magath looks on anxiously.

  • Marc Albrighton is replaced by Jordan Bowery for the remaning few minutes.

  • We're into FOUR added minutes at Villa Park.

  • Marc Albrighton is booked for a late challenge.

  • Time is running out for Fulham as Brede Hangeland makes an important header.

  • WHAT A CHANCE! Grant Holt breaks free and with the goal at his mercy, he bends his right-foot curler wide of the far post.

  • Hugo Rodallega scores his first goal in 15 months to hand Fulham the lead at Villa Park with time running out. Lewis Holtby's inswinger is helped on by the Colombian to send the ball past Brad Guzan into the back of the net.


  • Steve Sidwell knocks Grant Holt over and he picks up a booking.

  • John Arne Riise has come on for Fulham with Johnny Heitinga coming off.

  • Sascha Riether looks to have blocked Grant Holt off the ball, but referee Michael Oliver gives Fulham a goal kick.

  • Andreas Weimann's deft header flies inches over the crossbar as Villa pile on the pressure.

  • At the other end, David Stockdale makes a stunning save to deny Andreas Weimann's curling effort.

  • AMAZING BLOCK ON THE LINE! Ashkan Dejagah dummies the ball to Lewis Holtby who side steps Brad Guzan before sending his shot towards the empty net. Matt Lowton gets across to make the most amazing block on the line to deny him what looked like a certain goal! Goalline technology comes to Villa's rescue.

  • Marc Albrighton's shot is well saved by David Stockdale. It's a quite superb game now!

  • Aleksandar Tonev almost breaks clean through on goal as the atmosphere picks up.

  • Villa have managed just one win in their last 7 Premier League meetings with Fulham, losing twice and drawing 4 times. That 1-0 win came in March 2012.

  • It's only Holt's second Aston Villa start and the striker scores at the Holte End. It was meant to be!
