Aston Villa crashed and burned against Millwall, 1-2 in their FA Cup fourth round just two days after League 2 side Bradford City heaped scorn in their Capital One Cup semi-final encounter. Paul Lambert is still clinging onto his job but it has been all around, unflagging misery for the Villans. They're also just a point away from the drop zone with the rest of the league using them for target practise for the worst goal differential.
Today, it was the turn of Luton Town, a non-league side, 85 places lower, to send Norwich City to an ignominious 1-0 defeat, and to continue that theme League 1 side MK Dons turned aside Harry Redknapp's QPR, 4-2.
Scott Rendell sprinting across goal diverted Jonathan O' Donnell's cross near post for an 80th minute goal stuffing the Canaries. Rendell had come in 5 minutes earlier in a serendipitous substitution.
MK Dons got the boat rocking as Armand Traore got the boat rocking with an own goal and then it sprang a gusher as Ryan Lowe and Ryan Harley scored a second and third. QPR were truly sunk with Darren Potter's 56th minute strike. Jay Bothroyd and Fabio made the scoreline a bit more respectable with two late goals.
