Late winner for Villa in derby

Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor scored a late winner to settle a scrappy derby against Birmingham at St. Andrew's.

Agbonlahor struck with six minutes remaining to lift Martin O'Neill's side into sixth place in the Barclays Premier League.

City had dominated for much of the second-half but failed to create anything of note to trouble Villa keeper Brad Friedel and they paid for their lacklustre display when Agbonlahor pounced to score from close range.
