Australian skipper Mile Jedinak’s Aston Villa made it back-to-back wins as Jonathan Kodija’s goal handed them a 1-0 triumph over Fulham.
Jedinak played a key role for 73 minutes for the Villans before he was substituted by manager Steve Bruce.

The victory – thanks to Alex Baptiste’s 75-minute goal – moves Preston up to ninth and just three points from the play-off places.
