Unlucky not to hold on to a point against Liverpool bud, but hopefully there's some wins to come in the near future.
Villa Limp Past Preston
Scott Sinclair scores one of Aston Villa's penalties
Aston Villa needed penalties to eliminate Preston North End after an entertaining 2-2 draw after 120 minutes
An impressive Preston North End will feel hard done by after an uninspiring Aston Villa fought back from a goal down in 90 minutes to force extra time. Preston's Eoin Doyle sent Deepdale into ruptures on 60 minutes when he slotted past Brad Guzan.
Villa captain for the day Ciaran Clark headed home the equalizer on 82 minutes off a well worked corner forced extra time. Scott Sinclair thought he scored the winner in the first period of extra time with a delightful free-kick but it wasn't to be.
Preston deservedly drew level with just 10 minutes to go when Calum Woods scored from what presumably was a cross, which flew over Brad Guzan's head and into the back of the net.
Penalties then assusmed where Villa managed to come out on top 4-3, with both Bacuna and Agbonlahor having their penalties saved.
Remi Garde will find out who they will face in the next round of the Capital One Cup next week, however the fans know that performances must improve if they would like to progress further.[/img]
