Derby are one of six Championship teams in the draw after a number of Premier League clubs - including Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur - turned down the Football League’s invitation to enter.

Each club will play each other once either home or away to determine which 32 teams go through to the knockout phase.
