Here we go.
It’s Aston Villa vs Yeovil Town in the First Round of the Carabao Cup (the League Cup).
While the fixture traditionally isn’t viewed with much prestige, it’s become something of a focus for Villa fans over the past season as it’s this match that seems to be the platform on which future Aston Villa talent emerges.
Last season, in the First Round of the Carabao Cup we saw Callum O’Hare emerge into the senior picture of Aston Villa. We also saw Scott Hogan come into his own with a confidence-raising goal, and an excellent performance from Jed Steer.
Take it or leave it, there’s a lot that Villa, and their fans, can gain from this match-up with Yeovil Town. And hey, advancing in a cup competition is nothing to sniff at.
