Wolves edged out by Villa

other Updated: Sep 26, 2010 22:49 IST

Emile Heskey's late header gave Aston Villa a 2-1 victory here on Sunday, earning manager Gerard Houllier a second successive win as Villa manager.

Left winger Stewart Downing put Villa ahead in the 25th minute after meeting Marc Albrighton's cross with a close-range volley.

But Matt Jarvis equalized when his left-wing center crept inside the far post.

The result extended Houllier’s dream start to life at Villa Park after the Midlands club beat Blackburn 3-1 in the League Cup in his first match in charge.
