The draw for the first round of the Capital One Cup has been made and this has seen Fleetwood find out who our first opponents of this season 2015/16 competition will be.

An announcement of this draw, and who we would play, was made this morning and has seen us given a home tie against League 2 side Hartlepool United, who will now be coming to Highbury.

We would be keen to make sure that this tie isn’t going to be our only in the competition wouldn’t we?

It’s obvious priorities remain elsewhere this season but it’s still a competition the manager, probably more importantly the chairman due to the extra income it might bring to help our season, will want to do well in this competition as will most fans.

The first round draw saw seeded and unseeded sides and something of a regional split. This was that draw in full:-

Carlisle United v Chesterfield
Nottingham Forest v Walsall
Fleetwood Town v Hartlepool United
Scunthorpe United v Barnsley
Bolton Wanderers v Burton Albion
Accrington Stanley v Hull City
Rochdale v Coventry City
Oldham Athletic v Middlesbrough
Huddersfield Town v Notts County
Blackburn Rovers v Shrewsbury Town
Morecambe v Sheffield United
Doncaster Rovers v Leeds United
Wigan Athletic v Bury
Northampton Town v Blackpool
Sheffield Wednesday v Mansfield Town
Rotherham United v Cambridge United
Crewe Alexandra v Preston North End
York City v Bradford City
Port Vale v Burnley
Peterborough United v Crawley Town
Yeovil Town v Queens Park Rangers
Plymouth Argyle v Gillingham
Swindon Town v Exeter City
Bristol Rovers v Birmingham City
Ipswich Town v Stevenage
Luton Town v Bristol City
Charlton Athletic v Dagenham & Redbridge
Wolverhampton Wanderers v Newport County
Brentford v Oxford United
Portsmouth v Derby County
Southend United v Brighton & Hove Albion
Milton Keynes Dons v Leyton Orient
Cardiff City v AFC Wimbledon
Millwall v Barnet
Wycombe Wanderers v Fulham
Colchester United v Reading

These ties will be played the week commencing 10th August 2015 with dates, times and TV schedules to be confirmed by next Tuesday, 23rd June.

Are you confident about our chances of making it into round two or will it be a case of over and out in round one?
