Sunderland will entertain League Two club Exeter City in the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Tonight’s draw ensured a rematch of the epic battle between the two sides in the same competition in 1989-90, when Sunderland struggled to force a 2-2 fourth round draw down in Devon, coming from two goals down with two late goals, and only progressed thanks to a 5-2 Roker Park success in the replay.

Elsewhere in the draw, Newcastle host Northampton, Middlesbrough go to a Burton Albion side managed by former Boro striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Hartlepool United entertain Premier League new boys Bournemouth.

The ties are to be played in the week beginning Monday, August 24.
