Milner ready to hand Villa spotkick duty to Petrov

Aston Villa midfielder James Milner is ready to surrender spotkick duties to skipper Stiliyan Petrov.

Milner followed his Carling Cup miss against Cardiff by hitting a weak effort, which was saved by Jussi Jaaskelainen, in Saturday's convincing 5-1 win over Bolton.

"Stan is a good penalty taker as well," Milner told the Birmingham Mail. "I'm sure we will work it out between ourselves. Saturday was a poor penalty but there's always next time.

"It was important to bounce back after West Ham and sign off with a good win going into the international break."
