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

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

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
