Carling Cup Draw

The draw for the second round of the Carling Cup has been made with several Premiership teams facing tricky opposition. Roy Keane returns to Notts Forest for the first time in a competitive fixture. Quite sad in a way to think that Utd never played Forest in all Keane’s time there, for such a great club it’s brilliant to see some excitement back at the City Ground. They have added the perennial Championship goalscorer Robert Earnshaw to their ranks and he scored twice in their first round win over Morecambe last night.


With the Premiership teams in European action not added until the third round stage, giantkillerswill be lurking to topple some of the clubs who could do with a good cup run.
West Ham reached the FA Cup Final against Liverpool two years ago and would love another crack at Wembley. They host Macclesfield in the second round. Newcastle face a tricky trip to Chris Coleman’s Coventry, for whom new signing Clinton Morrisson got off the mark with a goal last night. Newly promoted Premiership side Hull face a tricky trip to Roberto Martinez’ Swansea while Mark Hughes will kick off Man City’s campaign away to Brighton.
