Villa to face Tranmere in Capital One Cup second round

Villa have been drawn at home to Tranmere Rovers in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

The League One side, managed by Ronnie Moore, are set to travel to Villa Park for the clash after winning 2-1 against Chesterfield in the first round.

The tie will bring back memories of Villa's epic semi-final victory over Tranmere on the way to lifting the trophy in 1994.

Mark Bosnich was the hero in a dramatic second leg at Villa Park with three penalty saves as Ron Atkinson's side won a shootout.

Villa - who have won the League Cup five times - will be looking to better last season's performance in the competition when they reached the third round.

The boys in claret and blue earned a 2-0 win over Hereford United in the second round before losing to Bolton Wanderers in round three.

Other second round ties in the Capital One Cup include Coventry City v Birmingham City, Sheffield Wednesday v Fulham, Yeovil v West Brom, Everton v Leyton Orient, Walsall v Queens Park Rangers and Northampton v Wolves.

Villa's game against Tranmere is set to take place in the week commencing August 27.
