John Terry scored his first goal for Aston Villa in their 2-1 victory against Fulham this afternoon thanks to none other than Cork native Conor Hourihane.

The former Chelsea skipper powered home the Republic of Ireland international's free-kick midway through the first half and to give Villa the all-important lead.

Stefan Johansen fired back for Fulham before the break but Albert Adomah sealed Villa's fifth win from six matches in the second half.

The result lifts Aston Villa into the playoff places for the first time this season after enduring a difficult start to life in the Championship which saw them win just two of their opening seven games.


Watch Conor Hourihane deliver a beautiful free kick for John Terry to fire home below:

It was Terry's first goal since opting to link up with manager Steve Bruce and Aston Villa and it was his first club goal for anyone other than his beloved Chelsea.

Terry was appointed captain at the start of the season and has played every minute in the Championship this season.


The 36 year old scored an astonishing 67 goals in over 700 appearances during an illustrious 22 year career with the Blues. In in his final game for Chelsea, Terry managed to score in their 4-3 victory over Watford last May.

Hourihane has been enjoying a fine run with the Villain's in recent times, scoring five goals and assisting one goal in 11 appearances so far this season.
