Birmingham, England, Nov 28: Christian Benteke headed home a late winner as Aston Villa beat Reading 1-0 on Tuesday to climb out of the relegation zone in the Premier League.




The Belgium striker met a left-wing corner with a downward header that bounced high into the net in the 80th minute, earning his team only its third victory in 14 matches.

The goal settled a scrappy game between two teams that are set to be involved in a relegation battle this season. Reading stayed second from bottom but is now just four points clear of Queens Park Rangers, which drew 0-0 at Sunderland.

Benteke had a weak shot saved and Brett Holman blazed over with Villa's other good chances.

Reading is without an away win in seven matches since returning to England's top flight.
