NORWICH, England (AP) — Gabriel Agbonlahor grabbed an 89th-minute winner for Aston Villa in a 2-1 victory at Norwich on Saturday, further easing the visitors' relegation fears in the English Premier League.

Agbonlahor, who gave Villa the lead in the 55th minute, sealed victory by running onto Ashley Westwood's through ball and slotting home to keep his team five points clear of the bottom three with two games left.

"We have to keep going but it's another huge, huge win," said Villa manager Paul Lambert, whose team beat Sunderland 6-1 on Monday. "This team is getting better and better every single game.

"They are playing football that's worthy of staying in this league."

Grant Holt converted a 74th-minute penalty to equalize for Norwich, which drops below Villa and just three points ahead of third-from-bottom Wigan but having played a game more.

"I'm annoyed and frustrated because there was no way we should have lost or deserved to lose," Norwich manager Chris Hughton said. "Next week's game against West Brom becomes a bigger game."

It was a successful return to Carrow Road for Lambert, whose acrimonious departure from Norwich last offseason led to a bitter legal wrangle.
