A second-half goal from Matt Fryatt earned the Foxes - currently 21st in the Coca Cola Championship - a shock 1-0 win at Villa Park in the third-round clash after O´Neill made six changes from the team which comfortably disposed of Everton in the Barclays Premier League at the weekend.
But only Shaun Maloney, of the players drafted in, emerged with much credit - to leave O´Neill contemplating whether he was right to revamp his team, saying: "Maybe people should just deserve to be in the side - or be in the side when someone gets injured. I still wanted some players to play. But I think you have to earn the right to be in the team - and that´s a big lesson."
