Swansea lift last year's Capital One Cup after beating Bradford

FA Cup holders Wigan, relegated to the Championship, are granted a bye due to European commitments but Harry Redknapp's men start at square one with a trip to St James Park.

Wigan's absence means that Newport County, who gained promotion to League Two, avoid a play-off scenario and bag a round one trip to the Amex Stadium to take on Championship play-off semi-finalists Brighton.

Conference champions Mansfield also feature in the draw and squeeze a trip to Tranmere into their League Two schedule, while one of the eye-catching ties of the round sees Northampton take on neighbours MK Dons.

Beaten finalists Bradford, who upset the odds to reach Wembley before coming unstuck against Swansea, have a local derby against Huddersfield Town in their opening game this term.

Full draw:

Bury v Crewe Alexandra

Shrewsbury Town v Bolton Wanderers

Middlesbrough v Accrington Stanley

Doncaster Rovers v Rochdale

Preston North End v Blackpool

Barnsley v Scunthorpe United

Tranmere Rovers v Mansfield Town

York City v Burnley

Notts County v Fleetwood Town

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
