Sunderland have been handed another home draw against League One opposition in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Fresh from their dramatic, late 4-2 win over MK Dons, the Black Cats were tonight drawn to meet high-scoring Peterborough United at the Stadium of Light – probably on Tuesday, September 24.

Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough side routed Reading 6-0 in a sensational second round tie last night.

Sunderland last met Posh in the FA Cup third round two seasons ago, when the Black Cats eased to a 2-0 away victory.

Newcastle, winners at Morecambe tonight, will host Leeds United, while the big tie of the round sees Liverpool away to Manchester United.
