Match thread and confirmed lineups for Aston Villa vs. Leyton Orient in the second round of the League Cup.
And so begins another year of cup competition, as Aston Villa face their most dreaded of all foes: a League One side. But this shouldn't be a match that fans fear too much. Like I said in yesterday's preview: it's okay to be confident, but if the team proves us wrong, it's also okay to be livid.
The match, so far as I can tell, will be audio-only on AVTV. So get your ears ready for the dulcet tones of Jack Woodward. We've got the lineups below (Sanchez! Grealish!) and feel free to join us in the comments!
