Carling Cup draw

With a positive start to the season on the pitch and the increased media attention off the pitch, I guess we were a plum tie for most of the sides in the draw for round 2 of the Carling Cup.


Well, with the past two seasons in mind a trip away at Ashton Gate to Bristol City throws up the perennial description 'banana skin'.


Certainly we will be ripe for the taking as far as they are concerned and they are in good shape following promotion from League 1 last season.


A nervy trip beckons...
