Villa boss O'Neill backs Harewood to come good

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is confident the goals will come for Marlon Harewood.

The big striker missed two good chances in last night's Carling Cup defeat to QPR, but O'Neill said: "His attitude is absolutely fine. He got into position, he missed a couple of chances and on another evening he probably would have taken them.

"Had he scored the first from Stiliyan Petrov's ball I am quite sure he would have taken the second with the header from Ashley Young's cross.

"Those chances might have fallen to somebody else and they might have missed them.''
