Villa will be looking to avoid an upset at the Dunes Hotel Stadium.

Dean Smith’s side reached the final of this competition in 2019-20, narrowly losing 2-1 to the irrepressible Manchester City at Wembley.

Despite a difficult summer that saw star player Jack Grealish depart, Villa got their first win of the season on the board on Saturday.

New signing Danny Ings scored his second goal in as many games in the 2-0 victory over Newcastle United, but is likely to be rested for this one with Smith set to juggle his squad.

That could provide an opportunity for Ollie Watkins to get some valuable minutes under his belt, and the former Brentford man would be desperate to capitalise on his chance.

Appearing in this competition for only the second time, League Two Barrow claimed their first-ever victory thanks to a 1-0 success over Scunthorpe United in round one.

Although, Mark Cooper’s side are looking to bounce back from Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Harrogate Town.

Barrow vs Aston Villa: Match Stats

Villa may be favourites but it is worth noting that they have won just two of their last seven away games, while failing to record a clean sheet during that span.

That will encourage Barrow, who are unbeaten in each of their last three on home soil.

Should he lead Villa’s line, Watkins will be looking to find the net for the fourth time in the last five appearances away from Villa Park.
