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.

There are still two ties outstanding from the second round, with Leyton Orient travelling to Everton this evening and the tie at Northampton tomorrow night.

There are definitely 13 sides from outside the Premier League still involved in the competition. There are four championship sides as well as seven League One and two League Two sides confirmed in the draw.

Sides remaining in the competition:

Premier League:

Arsenal, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Newcastle United, Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers, Reading, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Sunderland, Swansea, West Brom, West Ham and Wigan.
