Yeovil Town fall into the unseeded group of clubs that will go into this lunchtime's League Cup Second Round draw. After defeating Colchester United in last night's 3-0 win the Glovers now go into a draw where a total of thirteen Premier League sides enter the competition.
As with the first round, the competition continues to be seeded and that means the club are guaranteed either a Premier League or Championship side. However, note also that this is a national draw - there is no regional aspect to the draw. The teams will therefore be drawn out of two hats. According to the Swindon Advertiser this is the list of clubs that Yeovil Town can possibly face:
Seeded teams: Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Blackburn Rovers, Bolton Wanderers, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Everton, Fulham, Hull City, Ipswich Town, Leeds United, Leicester City, Middlesbrough, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers, Reading, Southampton, Stoke City, Sunderland, Swansea City, Watford, West Brom, West Ham, Wigan Athletic, Wolverhampton Wanderers.
For clarity, this is the list of unseeded clubs that got through to the Second Round draw:
Unseeded teams: Barnsley, Bradford City, Burton Albion, Carlisle United, Coventry City, Crawley Town, Crewe Alexandra, Doncaster Rovers, Gillingham, Leyton Orient, Morecambe, MK Dons, Northampton Town, Nottingham Forest, Oxford United, Peterborough United, Plymouth Argyle, Preston North End, Scunthorpe United, Sheffield Wednesday, Stevenage, Swindon Town, Tranmere Rovers, Walsall, Yeovil Town.
The draw will be live on the Sky Sports News channel at 12.30p.m. and needless to say we'll put out the draw on our Twitter account as soon as it happens, and on this news page as soon as possible after that.
The Second Round is scheduled to be played during week commencing August 27th and so the most common date chosen by clubs will be Tuesday 28th August, although that will be subject to television and policing requirements.
