Petrov: Time for Villa midfield to start scoring

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov admits their top four push could go off the rails unless the midfield improves their scoring record.

Petrov and usual sidekick Steve Sidwell have still to score this season.

While Fabian Delph and Nigel Reo-Coker have not netted yet either.

In contrast Villa's defenders have weighed in with five - the same as striker Gabby Agbonlahor.

Captain Petrov admitted: "In the last few seasons Gareth Barry scored a lot of goals. Siddy and me have not been on the scoring sheet so we need to produce more.

"We know that. We are working on it. It is always good when midfielders score goals. You help the strikers, help the team and take a lot of pressure off the strikers."
