O'Neill: Villa must make up for last season's Cup exit

Martin O'Neill wants to repeat past Carling Cup glories this season. The Aston Villa boss led Leicester to three finals in four years, lifting the trophy in 1997 and 2000. O’Neill is itching to get past QPR at home after Leicester dumped Villa out last year. He said: “I was very disappointed with myself after we’d lost to Leicester and want to try and put that right. This club has won the League Cup five times and we would love to win it again.”
