Aston Villa have been drawn against League one side Rotherham in the second round of the League Cup. Aston Villa were knocked out to League 2 side Bradford City in the semi-final. Hopefully, this year the team can do one better and reach the final of the League Cup, a competition which historically, the club has done rather well.
Rotherham and Aston Villa have faced each other in the League Cup previously. In 1961, the clubs played against each other in the final in the inaugural year of the League Cup. The final was two-legged and Aston Villa came out victories with a 3-2 aggregate score line.
The game will be played on August 26, I expect Lambert to play a few youth players in that game as well.
