The draw for the second round of the English Football League Cup took place earlier this afternoon.

Drawn live on Sky Sports following the culmination of the final first round tie of the week between Bury and Sunderland (Grimsby v Derby subject to rearranged fixture), the Cup now welcomes the majority of Premier League teams not completing in Europe.

European competing sides will join at the third round stage as always.

The draw was seeded and split north/south.

The second round ties are set for the week commencing August 21.

Northern Section:

Carlisle v Sunderland
Bolton Wanderers v Sheffield Wednesday
Accrington Stanley v West Bromwich Albion
Newcastle United v Nottingham Forest
Leeds United v Newport County
Stoke City v Rochdale
Huddersfield Town v Rotherham United
Middlesbrough v Scunthorpe United
Doncaster Rovers v Hull City
Blackburn Rovers v Burnley
Sheffield United v Leicester City
Aston Villa v Wigan Athletic
Barnsley v Derby County or Grimsby Town

Southern section:

QPR v Brentford
Crystal Palace v Ipswich Town
Watford v Bristol City
Norwich City v Charlton Athletic
Cheltenham Town v West Ham United
Brighton & Hove Albion v Barnet
Cardiff City v Burton Albion
Southampton v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Fulham v Bristol Rovers
Milton Keynes Dons v Swansea City
Birmingham City v Bournemouth
Reading v Millwall

With some ties called wrongly for a second time in a row, the above list should be accurate – I hope – others are still reporting that West Ham are at home.

  • Well,at least it’s a home tie however the opposition is not what we would have hoped for,no disrespect implied towards Bournemouth however if we were to draw Premier league team there are others who would have been more appealing.Bournemouth have become a very strong team since their promotion,it’s good to see teams like them in the top flight,it gives hope to all Championship teams what can be achieved.They did very well last season however it will become increasingly difficult for them to keep pace with the giants in that league.A tough tie that we will have to be at our very best if we are to progress further.It’s likely they will field a weakened team,if we have ambition and select our best starting eleven there is hope.

  • Bournemouth are a good side but they don’t have many fans so bad in both respects. I’m a little bit confused at why Villa are North and Wolves south.

  • Ijiaz H yes,that confused me too. The whole draw was confusing to say the very least,that’s the second time in a row they have messed it up.Come on,get your act together,it does make it entertaining though watching all the mistakes…….KRO
