The Capital One Cup Round 1 draw was revealed this morning and it is filled with interesting matchups, a couple of which in particular stand out.
Relegated QPR have been drawn against League Two side Exeter City at St. James Park and the Grecians will be eyeing a big scalp.
A few other interesting matches include AFC Bournemouth, who were promoted to the Championship, hosting south coast neighbours Portsmouth, who were relegated to League Two.
The biggest difference in league positions sees high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion taking on Newport County, who join the Football League this year, at the Amex.
