Norwich City will host Coventry City in the second round of the EFL Cup.
The Canaries, who were one of the seeded teams in the draw, will face the League One side for the second time in quick succession having beaten the Sky Blues 3-0 at Carrow Road during pre-season.
Goals from Wes Hoolahan, Jacob Murphy and Josh Murphy sealed the win for Norwich that day, as midfielder James Maddsion faced his old club.
Tony Mowbray's team won 3-2 at home to Portsmouth in the first round on Tuesday night but started their league campaign with a 1-0 loss at Swindon on Saturday.
Last season the Canaries reached the fourth round of the League Cup, being beaten 4-3 on penalties at Everton following a 1-1 draw.
The draw for round two of the EFL Cup saw 13 top-flight teams enter the competition, along with relegated sides Newcastle and Norwich – but is already without nine eliminated Championship teams.
The latest second tier side to be knocked out by lower level opposition was Aston Villa, who lost 3-1 at Luton Town, with former Norwich Under-18s captain Cameron McGeehan on target for the League Two victors.
