Doncaster Rovers will travel to Watford in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

The reward for beating York City on Tuesday night is a trip to Vicarage Road to meet the Championship outfit.

Confusion reined during the draw, made live on Sky Sports last night, with a mix up on the television graphics suggesting Paul Dickov’s men had been drawn away at Premier League side Swansea City.

In fact it is near-neighbours Rotherham who will be heading to the Liberty Stadium.

The second round ties will be played the week commencing August 25.

Draw in full: Burton v QPR; Port Vale v Cardiff City; Middlesbrough v Preston; Stoke v Portsmouth; Huddersfield v Nottingham Forest; Swansea v Rotherham; Watford v Doncaster; Millwall v Southampton; Bournemouth v Northampton; Brentford v Fulham; West Brom v Oxford; Scunthorpe v Reading; Derby v Charlton; West Ham v Sheffield United; Swindon v Brighton; Leicester v Shrewsbury; Crewe v Bolton; Birmingham v Sunderland; Gillingham v Newcastle; Norwich v Crawley; Bradford v Leeds; Aston Villa v Leyton Orient; Burnley v Sheffield Wednesday; Walsall v Crystal Palace; MK Dons v Manchester United.
