Victory keeps Villa hopes alive
15:45, Feb 10 2013
Aston Villa moved out of the Barclays Premier League bottom three as second half goals from Christian Benteke and Charles N'Zogbia earned victory over West Ham at Villa Park.
Benteke broke the deadlock from the penalty spot with his 15th goal of the campaign and N'Zogbia made the points safe with a superb free-kick.
Ashley Westwood's late own-goal could not prevent Villa's first win in nine league games and ended a run of four successive home league defeats.
