March 7 (Reuters) - Gianluca Mancini's first-half goal was enough to earn AS Roma a 1-0 home win over Genoa on Sunday, with the victory moving Paulo Fonseca's side up to fourth in the Serie A standings.

In a tight contest, Mancini's bullet header from a corner in the 24th minute was enough for Roma to move on to 50 points from 26 games, one point above Atalanta in fifth, http://samocca-nordhorn.de/index.php?option=com_easybookreloaded and two behind third-placed champions Juventus, who both have a game in hand.

While Roma did have chances to make the result more comfortable -- substitute Gonzalo Villar going closest to a second as he struck a post in the second half -- Genoa had chances of their own to snatch a point against the nervy hosts.

Fonseca's men hung on, however, to leave Genoa down in 13th on 27 points, without a win in their last five league games.
