Analysis

Villa crashed out of the FA Cup after conceding three late goals to League One Peterborough at Villa Park.

Steve Bruce’s men looked set to continue where they left off against Bristol City when Andre Green forced keeper Jonathan Bond into a flying save after just 20 seconds.

And when Keinan Davis capitalised on the visitors’ defensive hesitancy to drill home the opening goal, few would have bet against a repeat of the 5-0 romp on New Year’s Day.

By half-time, though, Jed Steer had made a succession of fine saves to keep the lead intact, and although Davis, Conor Hourihane and Callum O’Hare all went close to doubling Villa’s advantage, Peterborough were level when Jack Mariott powered home a close-range header in the 75th minute.

Birkir Bjarnason almost restored the lead with a shot which crashed against the underside of the bar, but it was the visitors who produced the crucial second goal when defender Ryan Tafoazolli powered home a header before Marriott completed the scoring with a breakaway goal in stoppage time.
