Villa leave it late in win over Wycombe Wanderers

Late goals from Ciaran Clark and Idrissa Gueye gave Aston Villa a 2-0 win over League Two Wycombe in their FA Cup third round replay.

Irish defender Clark fiercely headed home unmarked from six yards with 15 minutes remaining to save Villa’s blushes after Wycombe came close to taking the lead on several occasions in either half.

Substitute Gueye’s injury-time finish from 15 yards after Rudy Gestede’s lay-off then doubled the hosts’ lead, as manager Remi Garde earned only his second win as Villa boss.

Villa, who are bottom of the Premier League and have not won the competition since 1957, will now host 2011 winners Manchester City in the fourth round.
