Published Add your comment

Substitute Stewart Downing's extra-time goal sealed a Carling Cup quarter-final spot for 10-man Aston Villa and ended the challenge of brave Burnley with a 2-1 win at Villa Park.

The England winger settled the fourth round tie with his powerful shot after 96 minutes.

Burnley defender Clark Carlisle had cancelled out Villa substitute Emile Heskey's opener with just a minute of normal time remaining. Villa had winger Marc Albrighton sent off four minutes after Downing had scored but last season's beaten finalists held on to reach the last eight.
