Aston Villa Manager Martin O’Neill has challenged his Villa players to make the most of their UEFA Cup lifeline.

Goals from Ashley Young, John Carew and Gabriel Agbonlahor in a 5-1 victory over Birmingham City on Sunday helped Villa to the biggest winning margin in a league derby since 1960.

Aston Villa’s European hopes looked over after a poor sequence of results during March which left them eight points adrift of main rivals Everton.

O’Neill said: “We have scored 15 goals in the last three games with Bolton, Derby and Birmingham and have put ourselves in with a chance (of Europe). I have a lot of time for Everton. I think it has been a great season for them. They have been heavily involved in the Carling Cup and the UEFA Cup, a bit unlucky there I think.”
