Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : March 4th 2015 Contents BIRMINGHAM---Christian Benteke con-
verted an injury-time penalty to earn
Aston Villa a 2-1 win over West
Bromwich Albion yesterday, ending the
team s seven-match losing run in the
Premier League and provisionally lifting
it out of the relegation zone.
West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster
fouled Matthew Lowton, and Benteke
coolly stroked in the spot kick in the
fourth minute of stoppage time to seal
Villa's first league win since December.
Gabriel Agbonlahor put Villa ahead in
the 22nd minute of the Midlands derby,
racing onto a flick-on from Benteke and
shooting through Foster's legs.
Saido Berahino equalised from close
range at a 66th-minute corner with his
second in as many games---and with
West Brom's first shot on target.
It was Villa's first league win under
new manager Tim Sherwood.
Sunderland midfielder Jack Rodwell
scored an equaliser after triggering a red
card for his manager in a feisty 1-1 draw
Sunderland's Gus Poyet was sent to
the stands and Hull's Steve Bruce had
to be restrained by the fourth official as
he tried to confront the Uruguayan after
the two managers exchanged words fol-
lowing a controversial booking in the
first-half. Rodwell was yellow-carded
for diving after the midfielder was put
clean through and then went down under
a challenge. Hull's deadline-day signing
Dame N'Doye scored a stylish goal in
the 15th minute, backheeling the ball
into the net from Tom Huddlestone's
But Rodwell grabbed the equaliser in
the 77th, helping the ball in after a clever
chip by Patrick van Aanholt.
Also, Southampton edged Crystal
Palace 1-0. (AP)
