Swindon Town boss Paolo di Canio is desperate to pull off a Capital One Cup upset against Aston Villa.

Swindon Town boss Paolo di Canio is desperate to pull off a Capital One Cup upset against Aston Villa.

Di Canio has already notched wins over Wigan in last season’s FA Cup and Stoke in the last round of this competition. And he says the board should erect STATUES of each of his players outside their County Ground home if they complete an unlikely Premier League treble by dumping out Paul Lambert’s strugglers.

Di Canio added: “To beat three Premier League teams in a row would be an amazing, fantastic achievement. It has probably never been done before in over 100 years history of the club. Aston Villa have great players like Darren Bent and Gabriel Agbonlahor, but in the cup you only get one chance.

“If we take our chance we can win. We have to believe.”
