Norwich City face their second trip to Rotherham United's New York Stadium in the space of four months after the draw for the second round of the Capital One Cup.

Alex Neil's enter the competition against a side who dealt a severe blow to their hopes of automatic promotion to the Premier League back in April when they scored a late goal to secure a 1-1 draw.

The Canaries had shrugged off the loss of Lewis Grabban to a red card to take the lead on their first visit to the Millers' new ground, only to see Gary Hooper's brilliant effort cancelled out by Jordan Bowery. Steve Evans' side went on to clinch Championship survival and opened their campaign on Saturday with 4-1 home hammering at the hands of newly promoted MK Dons. They reached the second round by beating Cambridge United of League Two 1-0 on Tuesday night.

Ipswich Town also travel to South Yorkshire to play Doncaster, who beat Leeds in a penalty shoot-out last night. The ties will be played the week commencing August 24

Full draw: Aston Villa v Notts County, Walsall v Brighton, Crystal Palace v Shrewsbury, Sheffield Wednesday v Oxford, Portsmouth v Reading, Hartlepool v Bournemouth, Fulham v Sheff Utd, MK Dons v Cardiff, Hull v Rochdale, Sunderland v Exeter, Bury v Leicester, Doncaster v Ipswich, Rotherham v Norwich, Swansea v York, QPR v Carlisle, Barnsley v Everton, Peterborough v Charlton, Birmingham v Gillingham, Newcastle v Northampton, West Brom v Port Vale, Wolves v Barnet, Burton v Middlesbrough, Luton v Stoke, Preston v Watford
