Sunderland's Richardson puts hand up after Cup exit

Sunderland midfielder Kieran Richardson put his hand up after their Carling Cup elimination by Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

The former Manchester United star missed a glorious chance when he broke clear just two minutes from the end of extra-time against Aston Villa.

But he failed to beat keeper Brad Guzan, who went on to save three penalties as Villa won a dramatic shoot-out.

Richardson said: "I'm a confident lad and it was a one-on-one. I expected to score it. I'm sorry I didn't.

"There were a lot of chances for us and we couldn't stick one in."
