    I'm surprised Man City are in this draw, thought they would have been seeded for 3rd round.

    Not that bad a draw for all Premier League sides. Blackpool v Wigan or Gillingham v Blackburn I think are most likely, if any, to cause an upset.

    It's based on who's playing in Europe this season, that's why City aren't getting a bye to the 3rd round.

    Nice home tie for Cardiff. It'd be nice for them to get past this round and get a decent premiership team in the 3rd round.
