Late Benteke strike crushes Swindon

Published Add your comment

Aston Villa are through to the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup for the third time in four seasons after Christian Benteke scored a late winner against Swindon at the County Ground.

Villa looked to be cruising to victory as goals from Benteke - a £7million summer signing from Genk - and Gabriel Agbonlahor earned them a 2-0 half-time lead.

But the npower League One side, who had already overcome Stoke in this season's competition, fought back through two goals from substitute Miles Storey before Benteke had the final say.
