Swindon are aiming to become the first club from outside the top two divisions to reach the League Cup quarter-finals since Wycombe did it in December 2006.

This is their best run since qualifying for the semi-finals 17 years ago.

Paolo Di Canio’s side have not scored fewer than three goals in a League Cup tie in their three ties so far this season.

The Robins famously beat Arsenal 3-1 to win the 1968-69 League Cup for the only time in their history.

The first-ever winners of the League Cup have triumphed five times (1961, 1975, 1977, 1994 and 1996), and been runners-up three times (1963, 1971 and 2010).

Aston Villa are targeting a third appearance in the quarter-finals in four seasons.

They last lost to a third-tier club in November 2005, when Doncaster defeated them 3-0 in the fourth round.
