Aston Villa put the disappointment of their derby defeat to Wolves behind them with a 2-1 victory over Fulham at Villa Park on Saturday afternoon.

Villa took the lead in the 23rd minute when John Terry powered home his firs goal for the club after Hourihane had swung in a teasing delivery from a free-kick.

It looked like Villa would be going into the break one goal to the good, but Glenn Whelan conceded a foul on the edge of the box, and Stefan Johansen found the bottom corner.

Fulham weren’t level for long though as a Jonathan Kodjia miss-kick fell nicely for Albert Adomah to slot in his fifth goal of the season.

Fulham could have left Villa Park with a point, but Johnstone produced a fine save to deny Floyd Ayite, and, by doing so, ensured that Villa moved up to fifth in the table.
