Aston Villa held to 1-1 draw by Fulham in EPL

BY foxsports • April 13, 2013

Aston Villa missed the chance to pull clear of the Premier League relegation zone Saturday as Fabian Delph's own goal in the second half gave Fulham a 1-1 draw.

Paul Lambert's side went ahead through Charles N'Zogbia in the 55th when he bent a shot into the left-hand corner. But the equalizer came in the 66th when Delph failed to clear a corner, flicking it backward with his head and past goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Delph then missed a chance to atone for his mistake in the 73rd, blasting a loose ball at the back post high and wide.

Villa is three points ahead of 18th-place Wigan, but with two more games played.
