Villa skipper Agbonlahor thrilled with cult hero Benteke

Aston Villa's Gabby Agbonlahor is delighted to see the Villa Park faithful getting right behind Christian Benteke.

The 21-year old Belgian striker headed home in the 80th minute as Villa scored a much-needed 1-0 win over Reading and skipper Agbonlahor was thrilled to see the fan favourite come up with the goods.

"You can tell by the fans' reaction how much they've taken to him," he told Sky Sports 2 about Benteke who netted his third league goal.

"He's still only 21 but he doing great for us. He's helped us with the goal tonight and all credit to him."
