After trailing to a 21st-minute Jordan Mustoe opener at the break, Westley saw his side produce a much-improved second-half performance to score four times.

Substitute Akpo Sodje bagged a brace while Graham Cummins and Paul Huntington were also on target.

Westley said: "We want to do well in this competition and after going 1-0 down I thought the lads responded superbly well in the second half to earn the win.

"We made a few changes and gave some of the lads who have not been featuring a game and I thought they responded superbly and were a credit to themselves.

"I wasn't happy with their first goal and our defending at times is leaving a bit to be desired, but there were more positives than negatives and I was delighted with the appetite they showed to take us a step closer to that Wembley final which we would all love."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
