The Villa Park boss, whose side face Swindon Town tonight after beating Manchester City 4-2 at the Etihad in the last round, said: "Beating Manchester City in the previous round at their place was brilliant. But that's gone now. It's another tough game we are facing.
"The fans want us to do well and it's a huge club. We'll give it a right good go to succeed. It won't be for a lack of trying on my part."
