Norwich City will face lower league opposition in the second round of the Capital One Cup, after being drawn at home against Crawley Town.

The Canaries were seeded for the draw, along with other lower Premier League teams and higher Championship teams.

It will be the first time the two clubs have met in a competitive fixture, unsurprisingly given Crawley's rise from non-league in the past decade.

The League One side, who are managed by former Aston Villa boss John Gregory, face the Canaries after beating Ipswich Town in the first round.

Izale McLeod's goal sealed the win against the Tractor Boys in extra time for Crawley on Tuesday night, following on from a 1-0 win at Barnsley on the opening day of the league season.
