Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry admits they're desperate to keep John Carew fit after his strike in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

Barry said: "John is a massive player for us and when he plays like that he's unplayable.

"Defenders really struggle to deal with him, so hopefully that goal will add to his confidence and he can add a few more to his tally. If he stays fit I'm sure he is going to score lots of goals for us."
