Capital One Cup
By Dan Harrison at the County Ground
Villa have made five changes for tonight's Capital One Cup fourth round tie at Swindon Town.
Shay Given, Eric Lichaj, Barry Bannan, Andreas Weimann and Stephen Ireland come into Paul Lambert's starting line-up.
The five who drop out are Brad Guzan, Joe Bennett, Fabian Delph, Marc Albrighton and Brett Holman.
The Villa boss has kept faith with Gabby Agbonlahor and Christian Benteke, who started up front in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Norwich City.
Lichaj replaces the suspended Bennett at left-back, while Weimann gets another opportunity after impressing in the previous round at Manchester City.
Former Villa striker James Collins starts for Swindon against several of his former academy colleagues.
The Republic of Ireland U21 hotshot scored a sensational hat-trick when Paulo Di Canio's team toppled Stoke City in the second round.
SWINDON: Fotheringham, McEveley, Flint, Devera, Ferry, Collins, Ritchie, Roberts, McCormack, Benson, Miller. Subs: Bedwell, Archibald-Menville, N Thompson, L Thompson, Storey, De Vita, Williams.
VILLA: Given, Lowton, Vlaar, Herd, Lichaj, El Ahmadi, Bannan, Weimann, Ireland, Agbonlahor, Benteke. Subs: Guzan, Bent, Albrighton, Holman, Delph, Stevens, Burke.
