O'Neill insists Villa serious about Cup clash with Palace

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill insists they're taking their FA Cup tie with Crystal Palace seriously.

Villa are already into the Carling Cup final and are chasing a top four finish this season.

But O'Neill said: "We're going to try to win the game. There might be a couple of enforced changes and I might make another couple as well.

"But overall we still want to compete in the competition. We have reached a Wembley final in one competition and we want to try and do what we can to do as well as possible in another."
