Villa gives trial to Colorado forward Cummings

Aston Villa is giving a trial to Colorado Rapids forward Omar Cummings as part of an effort to find the goals it needs to stay in the Premier League.
The 28-year-old Jamaica international is training with a side sitting one point above the relegation zone after winning just one of its past seven matches.
Villa manager Gerard Houllier says "he is quick and can also play on the wing ... we have not many options up front at this time."
Cummings scored a career-best 14 goals in 2010 to lead Colorado to Major League Soccer's playoffs and a first MLS Cup title.
Winger Stewart Downing is Villa's leading scorer with five Premier League goals.
Only Wigan and Birmingham have scored fewer than Villa's 20 goals in 19 matches.
