Shay Given is handed a rare start for Aston Villa in their League Cup tie against hosts Swindon Town.

Irish goalkeeper Shay Given has been included in the Aston Villa side for tonight's League Cup trip to Swindon Town.

Stephen Ireland and Barry Bannan have also been named in the starting lineup, but once again England striker Darren Bent has been forced to settle for a place on the bench.

Visiting Swindon will begin the tie with two players up front in the form of Paul Benson and James Collins - who used to play for Villa.

Swindon: Foderingham; Devera, McCormack, Flint, McEveley; Ritchie, Ferry, Miller, Roberts; Benson, Collins

Villa: Given; Lowton, Vlaar, Herd, Lichaj; El Ahmadi, Weimann, Bannan, Ireland; Agbonlahor, Benteke
