Christian Benteke celebrates scoring Aston Villa's winning goal

First published in National Sport © by

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert again excluded record signing Darren Bent but saw his replacement Christian Benteke score a late winner in the bottom-of-the-table clash with Reading at Villa Park.

The Belgium international ended a four-game run without a goal when he headed home an Ashley Westwood corner with 10 minutes remaining.

Villa's third win of the season moved them out of the Barclays Premier League bottom three in front of their lowest home league gate - 28,692 - for six years.
