Christian Benteke's last-gasp penalty gave Tim Sherwood his first points as Aston Villa manager with victory over West Brom at Villa Park.
There are big moments, and then there are really big moments. Aston Villa played well in the first half and took a deserved early lead through Gabby Agbonlahor but they failed to add the vital second goal while dominating and very nearly paid the price. Saido Berahino equalised for the Baggies from close range with 25 minutes remaining and the match looked to be heading for a draw, until Ben Foster brought down Matthew Lowton in injury time. Up stepped Christian Benteke, and the Belgian calmly slotted the penalty away - his first goal of 2015 - to hand Tim Sherwood's side an absolutely massive three points, ending a run of seven consecutive defeats. This could be the turning point as the Villans move up to 17th place, with West Brom five points ahead in 13th. Mar 3 - 5:02 PM
