Aston Villa were fed to the Lions in the fourth round of the FA Cup as they succumbed to a late John Marquis winner to lode 2-1 at Millwall.

Following their Capital One Cup exit three nights ago to npower League Two outfit Bradford, the last thing Paul Lambert's side needed was a tricky FA Cup tie against more lower-league opposition.

Darren Bent was recalled by Lambert and opened the scoring for the Barclays Premier League strugglers, but the pressure continues to mount on the former Norwich boss as headers from Danny Shittu and Marquis sealed a well-deserved win for Millwall.
