Leyton Orient become the latest lower league team to inflict more cup misery on Aston Villa, winning 1-0 at Villa Park.

Romain Vincelot's header three minutes from time sees Orient join Bradford in humiliating Villa in this competition, with the Bantams famously defeating the Premier League team over a two-legged semi-final in 2013.

Lambert looking for Villa to come of age

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists his players cannot use youth and inexperience as an excuse any more.

With Villa having ended each of the last two seasons in 15th place, the Scot is in no doubt an improvement is needed in 2014-15 and over the summer he has notably brought in signings with plenty of action in the division under their belts in Joe Cole, Philippe Senderos and Kieran Richardson.

They [the players] are not young any more. They have had two years of it.

You can't keep going with that excuse. You stand up and take it now. You can only get away with that for so long.

(Eighteen-year-old midfielder) Jack Grealish is young. But the rest - they are men now.

– Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert
