SUNDERLAND have been handed a home draw against League Two club Morecambe in the second round of the Capital One Cup.
The Black Cats will face the Shrimps – probably on Tuesday, August 28 – in the first ever competitive meeting between the two clubs.
Morecambe secured a successful passage to the second round after humbling Championship neighbours Blackpool at Bloomfield Road last Sunday.
Sunderland will hope to avoid another cup banana skin after falling at the second round hurdle last season when they slumped to an extra-time defeat at Brighton.
Ticket information is yet to be announced.
