All six of our professional football clubs have today learned who they will face in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

The draw for the tournament, which Premier League champions Manchester City won last year, took place this morning.

Five of our clubs; Sheffield Wednesday, Sheffield United, Barnsley, Rotherham United and Chesterfield, have been handed home ties.

Wednesday, who were taken over by Azerbajani businessman Hafiz Mammadov, subject to Football League ratification, last week, will host League One outfit Notts County.

United, aiming for automatic promotion after finishing seventh during the 2013/14 campaign, face Mansfield at Bramall Lane.

Barnsley will lock horns with Crewe at Oakwell while Rotherham United, buoyed after securing back-to-back promotions, entertain League One newcomers Fleetwood Town. Rotherham reached the second stage of the competition last term, losing 3-0 to Aston Villa.

Chesterfield’s player of the year Gary Roberts will come face to face with Huddersfield Town, one of his old clubs, after Paul Cook’s men were paired with the Terriers.

Doncaster Rovers will travel to York City, who lost to Fleetwood in the semi-finals of the League Two play-offs.
