Brighton & Hove Albion have been seeded alongside the likes of Manchester United and Newcastle United for the Capital One Cup second round draw.
Sami Hyypia’s men are ball number four in the draw that will take place on Sky Sports immediately after the conclusion of the Coventry City v Cardiff City live TV match.
Thirteen Premier League clubs enter the competition at this stage, with the remaining seven joining in round three as they are involved in European competition.
The draw is seeded, with the top 12 Football League clubs still in the competition (based on last season’s finishing positions) joining the 13 Premier League clubs as seeds.
Unseeded clubs will be subject to a pre-draw to determine a home or away match, with each unseeded team facing a seeded side. Seeded clubs will be drawn out live on Sky Sports News with the draw numbers as listed below.
