DRFC Draw Details - Capital One League Cup 3rd Rd

Doncaster Rovers will find out their next opponents when the draw for the Third Round of the Capital One League Cup takes place on Thursday evening.

The draw will take place on Sky Sports 1 following the conclusion of the second round clash between Northampton Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Rovers booked their place in the third round, with a superb fight back win against championship side Hull City in the second round on Tuesday night.

Hull led 2-0 after just ten minutes at the Keepmoat but goals from David Syers and Rob Jones brought the game level and Syers scored his second of the evening in stoppage time to put Rovers through.

It is the first time Rovers have reached the third round since losing at Wycombe Wanderers on penalties in 2006.

The draw will be an open draw with no seeding or regionalisation and it will also see the introduction of the seven Premier League sides who are involved in European competitions.
