Uche strikes twice to hand Villarreal breathing space


Fidel Chaves put Elche in front in the 57th minute with a well-directed header to flick Edu Abacar’s pass off the base of the far upright and into the net.

Valencia pushed Elche into their area and Juan Bernat banged in his own rebound in the 73rd minute after goalkeeper Manuel Herrera parried his initial volley.

Cristian Herrera went on in the 79th minute and five minutes later took Ferran Corominas’ pass and beat goalkeeper Diego Alves with a shot from the left of the six-yard box to claim the three points.
