Fulham 0 Aston Villa 2: Goals from Gabby enough to pick up three points at Craven Cottage

A headed goal from Gabby Agbonlahor and an excellent shot curled round the Fulham keeper with his left foot, both in the first half, saw off Fulham today, can I write this next bit, with ease.

Basically, we looked too good for them defensively with all of the back four in the action today, making superb blocks and interceptions which scuppered any chance of Fulham getting back into it.


But it was a day for Gabby and the first goal actually came from a cross but also from the most unlikely of players; Stiliyan Petrov. The cross was absolutely pinpoint and all Gabby had to do was put his head on it and direct it in.

The second was a bit of magic, in so much that Carlos played the ball into Gabby and he made a little space, shaped his body and bent it round the keeper. It was a goal worthy of the three points.

Fulham did come back into the game more in the second half but like I´ve said, defensively, we looked very good today. It was a good three points today and hopefully, the beginning of us getting back to winning ways.

So, all that is left for me today is to ask you to vote for the man of the match which, even though I think I know where this is going, it has to be done.

Post-mortem, statistics and newspapers tomorrow. For now, a beer I think as we are back into fifth place, which is where we need to be sixth place, which is where we need to be before the final push.
