Carabao Cup: Frank Lampard’s Derby drawn at Oldham

Frank Lampard’s Derby will visit League Two side Oldham in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Having missed out on promotion, Aston Villa will make the long trip to Yeovil, Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds host Bolton, relegated West Brom face Luton at The Hawthorns, Sunderland host Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United have been drawn at home to Hull in a Yorkshire derby.

It was the second successive season the Carabao Cup draws have taken place overseas.

Last season events were staged in Bangkok and Beijing as part of the EFL’s continued efforts to build the value of the competition outside the UK.

The previous seeding system was ditched which meant any two teams could be drawn against each other.

Other format changes mean matches will also go directly to penalties, with extra time no longer needed.
