Gareth Barry endured a miserable return to captaincy duties as the unlikely figure of QPR's Damion Stewart dumped Aston Villa out of the Carling Cup with a 1-0 victory at Villa Park.
Stewart headed home after 58 minutes to put the Coca-Cola Championship side into the fourth round as a reshuffled Villa side struggled to find any fluency.
Barry was asked to lead the side for the first time since his protracted move to Liverpool fell through but despite a lively display from Ashley Young, Villa could not find the goal they needed to force extra time.
