Petrov strike caps Villa rout

Published Add your comment

Stiliyan Petrov´s 50-yard wonder goal was the undoubted highlight of Aston Villa´s 6-0 romp in the sunshine as Paul Jewell suffered yet another black day as boss of doomed Derby.

The Rams crashed to their worst home defeat of an already wretched season, eclipsing the 5-0 thrashing they suffered at the hands of another team in claret and blue - West Ham - five months ago.

Ashley Young, John Carew, captain Gareth Barry, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Marlon Harewood all joined Petrov on the scoresheet to keep Villa in the hunt for European football next season.
