The draw for Round 1 of the Carling Cup has been made and as usual it's thrown up some eye catching fixtures.

Gillingham could be the first competitive visitors to Brighton & Hove Albion's new home - the Amex Stadium, as the League 2 side take on the newly promoted Seagulls.

Gus Poyet's side took npower League 1 by storm next season and will be looking to continue that form in the Championship, even more so in their plush new surroundings.

There's an all Nottingham derby as Forest host neighbours Notts County at the City Ground. It could be new boss Steve McClaren's first home game after agreeing a three-year deal to replace Billy Davies at the helm.

The two sides haven't met since the 1993/94 season when they were both playing in the old Division 1, back then both sides won their respective home fixtures.

There's also an all Yorkshire derby as Bradford City travel to Elland Road to take on Leeds United. Peter Jackson will relish the chance to get one over his local rivals after appearing as a player for Halifax, Bradford and Huddersfield Town.

Two of last season's promoted sides will meet at Broadhall Way when Stevenage host Peterborough United.It will be the first time the two sides have ever met.

The Don Valley Stadium will welcome another former England Manager when Sven-Goran Eriksson takes his Leicester City side to South Yorkshire to take on Rotherham United. The last time the two sides met was back in 2008, in the Football League Trophy, and on that occasion the Millers ran out 2-0 winners at Millmoor.

Aldershot's task to get to Round 2 couldn't be much harder after they were drawn to take on West Ham United at Upton Park.

The Hammers are the second highest placed team, from last season, in the competition at the first round stage after they finished bottom of the Premier League. It will be the third meeting between the two sides after they went head to head in the FA Cup in 1991. The Shots held the Hammers to a goalless draw at the Recreation Ground before losing 6-1 in the replay at Upton Park.

The first round could also see AFC Wimbledon travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace, if they can overcome Crawley Town in the preliminary round.

Their namesake club Wimbledon spent 12 years playing at the stadium before their move to Milton Keynes.
