Aston Villa will enter the League Cup in the 3rd round stage with a home-tie against Championship side Cardiff City.
Villa, who entered in the 3rd round stage courtesy of their Europa League involvement (which has since ended at the hands of Rapid Vienna) will look to improve on last seasons capitulation against Queens Park Rangers, by welcoming a number of ex-Villans to fortress Villa Park!
Dave Jones' side includes none other than former winger Peter Whittingham, heavily (wrongly) criticised goalkeeper Peter Enckleman, and Riccardo Scimeca.
The tie will be played during the week commencing the 21st September.
