Aston Villa fail to make the most of their chances in the first half of their home Premier League clash with Fulham, which remains goalless at the break.

Aston Villa's forward trio all had chances to give them the lead against Fulham, who hung on to maintain half-time parity at Villa Park.

Top scorer Christian Benteke scooped the ball over the crossbar early on after Nathan Baker's flick-on had presented him with a sharp chance six yards out.

The Belgian set up Charles N'Zogbia later in the half, but his shot was saved by the stretching Mark Schwarzer.

Andreas Weimann also had an opportunity to put the relegation-threatened hosts ahead just prior to the interval, but shot several yards wide from the edge of the box.

Fulham only registered one effort on target throughout the opening 45 minutes in the West Midlands - a Dimitar Berbatov strike that was smartly blocked by Baker.
