Villa handed plum draw

Last updated : 09 January 2006 By Norris Winter

David O’Leary's side, who won only their second game in the competition in six years against Hull City at the weekend, will fancy their chances against the team currently languishing 16th in League One. Villa have an impeccable cup record against the Staffordshire outfit, having won all three of their previous home encounters in the FA Cup with an aggregate 16-2 margin. That sequence includes a fourth round tie in 1989/90 when Villa emerged 6-0 victors – the last time the club met.
