Doncaster reached round three with a 3-2 win over Championship neighbours Hull. Holders Liverpool enter the competition with a trip to West Brom. Former Norwich boss Paul Lambert must take his Aston Villa side to Premier League champions Manchester City whilst Manchester United host Newcastle in the stand out tie of the third round.
