Villa's Carew was ready to skip spotkick

Aston Villa striker John Carew admits he had to be convinced about taking the penalty for his hat-trick on Saturday by skipper Gareth Barry.

He said: "I wasn't thinking about taking the penalty at all. But Gareth gave me the opportunity and I am very grateful.

"My last hat-trick was a couple of years ago with Lyon. I will put the ball somewhere nice in the house."
