Petrov happy at Villa

Stiliyan Petrov is happy to be part of Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill's rotation policy after being on the bench in recent games.

Petrov was a virtual ever present last season after his £6million move from Celtic even though he struggled to produce the form shown under O'Neill at Parkhead.

But the Bulgarian international is happy with his current situation - as long as the team maintains its hot streak of form which has lifted them to seventh in the Barclays Premier League.

Petrov said: "We are a team and to get three points from every game is all that matters. It does not matter who starts the game and who finishes the game as long as we get the result as a team.

"I understand that it will be rotation all the way where possible and I am just happy to play my part."
