This morning saw the First Round Draw of the Carling Cup take place, and it saw Blackpool pitted against League Two Crewe at Gresty Road.

Crewe were relegated from League One at the end of last season and Gudjon Thordarson’s men will be looking to provide a shock akin to Macclesfield beating the Pool in the First Round last year.

The tie will be played in the week commencing 10th August.

Other interesting fixtures:

Rotherham v Derby
Bury v West Brom
Preston v Morecambe
Macclesfield v Leicester
Barnet v Watford
Hereford v Charlton
Exeter v QPR
