Carling Cup Round 1 Draw: Brighton & HA (h)

Carling Cup Round 1 Draw: Brighton & HA (h)

Swansea City have been drawn to play Brighton & Hove Albion at home in the Carling Cup First Round.

The first round ties for the League Cup will be played on week commencing Monday August 10th (likely to be on Tuesday 11th).

Last year we reached the 4th round for the first time, but we lost 1-0 at home to Watford and missed a chance to host Tottenham Hotspur at the Liberty Stadium.

The tie will see the return of former Swan, Kevin McLeod who joined us in February 2005. At his best, he was an excellent left winger and scored some superb goals, including an excellent long-range strike in the 7-1 thrashing against Bristol City.

A lack of discipline and other things I won't go into led to his departure. He joined Colchester United on a free before signing for his current club at the beginning of last season.

Full Draw:

Accrington Stanley v Walsall
Huddersfield v Stockport
Rotherham v Derby
Tranmere v Grimsby
Sheffield Wednesday v Rochdale
Bury v West Brom
Notts County v Doncaster
Lincoln v Barnsley
Scunthorpe v Chesterfield
Coventry v Hartlepool
Darlington v Leeds
Preston v Morecambe
Crewe v Blackpool
Carlisle v Oldham
Nottingham Forest v Bradford
Macclesfield v Leicester
Sheffield United v Port Vale
Cardiff v Dagenham & Redbridge
Wycombe v Peterborough
Southampton v Northampton
Barnet v Watford
Hereford v Charlton
Bristol Rovers v Aldershot
Millwall v Bournemouth
Gillingham v Plymouth
Colchester v Leyton Orient
Reading v Burton Albion
Exeter v Queens Park Rangers
Cheltenham Town v Southend
Brentford v Bristol City
Yeovil v Norwich City
Crystal Palace v Torquay
MK Dons v Swindon
Swansea v Brighton & Hove Albion
Shrewsbury v Ipswich
