London:

Relegation-threatened Fulham ended a seven-game losing streak as Steve Sidwell and Dimitar Berbatov scored first-half goals in a 2-0 win over Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday.

After a minute's applause at Craven Cottage for former South African President Nelson Mandela who died on Thursday, Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan pushed Berbatov's header onto the bar but was powerless when Sidwell flicked the ball from a tight angle to open the scoring in the 21st minute.

Berbatov then calmly scored from the penalty spot for his second league goal this season after Alexander Kacaniklic was fouled by Leandro Bacuna in the box.

It was Fulham's first win since new manager Rene Meulensteen was appointed as a replacement for the sacked Martin Jol.
