Villa clung on for victory after £3.5m signing Emile Heskey’s debut goal. Martin O’Neill’s now side into third place with a 1-0 win at Portsmouth.The former Liverpool and Birmingham striker raced on to Gabriel Agbobnlahor’s flick and emphatically volleyed past David James for his first goal in Villa colours.

While the hosts might have felt aggrieved to be behind, by the end of the half Villa had had several chances to extend their lead.

Heskey demonstrated his immense strength, holding the ball up beautifully before laying it into the path of James Milner, who might have done better from 10 yards out.

Agbonlahor missed the best chance of the half when he raced on to a long ball to find himself in acres of space and one-on-one with James.

Pompey debutant Hayden Mullins twice went close in the first half and Peter Crouch scooped a close-range effort over, while Nadir Belhadj got a foolish second booking for dissent.

Villa are now two points ahead of fourth Chelsea and only trailing Liverpool on goal difference, although they play Wigan on Wednesday.
