Sunderland land Peterborough in Capital One Cup draw

Have your say

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.
