Yeovil Town are one of nineteen clubs who are unseeded in the First Round draw of the 2012-13 League Cup. The Glovers finished 17th in last season's League One Table, and are in the unseeded list for the Southern Section of the draw, which will be published at 9.30a.m. tomorrow.
There are 38 clubs listed in the Southern part of the draw, and 32 listed in the Northern part of the draw. The reason for this is a heavy imbalance towards Southern-based teams in League Two, meaning that the Southern section of the draw is larger and also meaning that the cut-off point is lower down than last season, where you needed to finish 11th to get a seeded place.
This means that Yeovil Town will be drawn to face one of the following teams in tomorrow's draw:
Southern Seeds: AFC Bournemouth, Birmingham City, Brentford, Brighton and Hove Albion, Bristol City, Cardiff, Charlton Athletic, Colchester United, Coventry City, Crystal Palace, Ipswich Town, Leicester City, Millwall, Milton Keynes Dons, Peterborough United, Portsmouth, Stevenage, Watford, Wolverhampton Wanderers..
The other relevant groupings are as follows:
Southern Non-Seeds: AFC Wimbledon, Aldershot Town, Barnet, Bristol Rovers, Cheltenham Town, Crawley Town, Dagenham & Redbridge, Exeter City, Gillingham, Leyton Orient, Northampton Town, Oxford United, Plymouth Argyle, Southend United, Swindon Town, Torquay United, Walsall, Wycombe Wanderers, Yeovil Town.
Northern Seeds: Barnsley, Blackpool, Burnley, Carlisle United, Derby County, Doncaster Rovers, Hartlepool United, Huddersfield Town, Hull City, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest, Notts County, Sheffield United, Sheffield Wednesday, Tranmere Rovers.
Northern Non-Seeds: Accrington Stanley, Bradford City, Burton Albion, Bury, Chesterfield, Crewe Alexandra, Fleetwood Town, Morecambe, Oldham Athletic, Port Vale, Preston North End, Rochdale, Rotherham United, Scunthorpe United, Shrewsbury Town, York City.
Update: 11.30am: The League have changed an earlier list to shuffle teams around, and now Yeovil Town are back in the unseeded list! Apologies for any confusion.
