The draw for the second round of the League Cup, re-branded the EFL Cup this season, has been made with us among those finding out who we will be coming up against.

Football League clubs came into the competition, as always, in the first round with this seeing a number of upsets secured so those clubs will now be looking to do the same in the second round.

Round two is of course when the majority of the ‘big boys’ from the Premier League also come into the mix, becoming the scalps all are looking to claim.

Dreams of League Cup glory remain on for some and will soon begin for others with the aim, as much as this competition isn’t as prestigious to many as it once was, to make it to Wembley and look to emulate Manchester City, who won this last season.

After the draw, made on Sky Sports, it is now known who stand between us and a place in the third round and that one step closer to the national stadium to compete for the trophy.

Second round draw in full.

QPR v Rochdale
Scunthorpe v Cardiff/Bristol City
Watford v Gillingham
Peterborough v Swansea
Everton v Yeovil
Millwall v Nottingham Forest
Sunderland v Shrewsbury
Luton v Leeds
Chelsea v Bristol Rovers/Bristol City
Burton v Liverpool
Blackburn v Crewe
Accrington v Burnley
Crystal Palace v Blackpool
Morecambe v Bournemouth
Preston v Oldham
Oxford v Brighton
Reading v MK Dons
Fulham v Middlesbrough
Newcastle v Cheltenham
Exeter v Hull
Derby v Carlisle
Northampton v West Brom
Wolves v Cambridge
Stevenage v Stoke
Norwich v Coventry

These matches will be played across the week commencing 21st August.

Now the question asked is are, are you happy with the tie we’ve been given and are you optimistic of our chances of making it into round three?
