The O’shave been handed a trip to the Midlands to face Paul Lambert’s Villans in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Russell Slade’s side progressed to this stage after overcoming League Two side Plymouth Argyle 6-5 penalties on Tuesday night, after the match at Home Park had ended deadlocked at 3-3 after extra time.

And while that was a long trip for the Brisbane Road side, the reward is a visit to Villa Park on the week commencing August 25.
