Sunderland 0-1 Villa highlights: Relive Black Cats triumph on AVTV


Villa fans rejoiced at their side's first away win since January as Gabby Agbonlahor sealed a 1-0 win over Sunderland.

In-form Agbonlahor carried on where he left off in the Capital One Cup against Swindon four days earlier with another superb strike at the Stadium of Light.

It was the Erdington-born striker's first top-flight goal for 12 months and the signs are evident that he is back to his best.

He pounced brilliantly to meet Christian Benteke's knockdown after some superb build-up play involving Ashley Westwood and Matthew Lowton.

Westwood - who made his first start for the club on Saturday - was another player to earn rave reviews following a classy full debut.

But Paul Lambert rightly stressed that it was a team effort.

Benteke showed his tremendous skills in attack, Stephen Ireland and Andreas Weimann delivered workmanlike displays and Ron Vlaar and Ciaran Clark were commanding at the back.

Goalkeeper Brad Guzan made an important save from Lee Cattermole in the second-half while substitute Enda Stevens got in on the act late on with a crucial defensive block.
