Villa skipper Petrov thrilled with Cup strike

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov was pleased with his goal in the FA Cup draw against Crystal Palace.

Petrov struck three minutes from time to earn Martin O'Neill's men a 2-2 draw in an action-packed fifth round tie against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

"I am really delighted," he said.

"We normally have other players to attack the ball and go in the penalty box but yesterday we changed it a bit.

"I had an opportunity to get forward and try to score and luckily I managed to do that. It's always good to get on the scoresheet."
