Looking Back - Aston Villa

27 September 2012

TOWN will welcome Aston Villa to The County Ground in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

The two sides have not met at SN1 since October 1993, when Villa came to Wiltshire for a Premier League fixture and returned to the Midlands with a 2-1 win. 

A tie against Paul Lambert's men also throws up another anniversary: Villa were the opponents in February 1992 when Town hosted the first ever live televised match from The County Ground. Goals from Dwight Yorke and Steve Froggatt secured a 2-1 win for Ron Atkinson's side. 

A number of a players have played for both clubs over the years including the likes of Phil King, Shay Given, Steve Cowe and Paul Rideout.

A date and ticket information will be announced here on the official website as soon as details have been agreed between both clubs.
