Norwich City face MK Dons in second round of Carling Cup

Norwich City will entertain Milton Keynes Dons in the second round of the Carling Cup.

Thursday night's draw gave the Canaries a chance to gain revenge for their 1-0 defeat to the Dons in the first round back in 2008.

Two seasons ago the Buckinghamshire club also managed a Carrow Road draw and a stadium:MK win during the Canaries' League One title charge.

On the draw, Norwich City boss Paul Lambert said: 'It's a home tie which is good and the MK Dons did really well in League One last year. I'm sure it'll be a tough game, but the main thing is that it is at home which is good for us.

'No doubt the Dons will bring a decent crowd, which will make it a good game. The main thing as I said though is that it's a home tie, which is all you can ask for in a cup competition.'

The draw, made live on Sky Sports, was delayed because it followed the Sheffield Wednesday v Blackpool first round tie – which went to extra-time and a penalty shoot-out won 4-2 by the Owls.
