Rovers, who reached the final of the competition in 2000, will take on Forest at Prenton Park during the week commencing August 11.

"It think it's a really good draw," Edwards told the club's official website.

"They're one of the biggest teams in the Championship and, with a new manager, I think they'll fancy their chances of going up to the Premier League this season.

"So it's a tough tie for us, but one we will be up for and hopefully we'll get a big crowd at Prenton Park for it."

The two sides last met in the competition in the 2003/4 season, with Forest winning via penalty shoot-out after 120 goalless minutes.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
