The glitz and glamor of the Capital One Cup First Round is fast approaching for Bolton Wanderers. The draw for the earliest matchups has now been completed and the teams are all set to face each other during the week of 5 August (with individual dates not yet confirmed). Bolton Wanderers, a seeded team, have been drawn with Shrewsbury Town, a non-seeded team (because that's how seeding works), for a match at Greenhous Meadow.

The match will be the second time in less than a month that the Trotters will travel to Shrewsbury's ground, with a friendly between the two teams already arranged for this summer. The match should prove another chance for Tom Eaves as he would take on a team that he spent just under two months on loan with.

The full draw is as follows:

Bury v Crewe Alexandra
Shrewsbury Town v Bolton Wanderers
Middlesbrough v Accrington Stanley
Doncaster Rovers v Rochdale
Preston North End v Blackpool
Barnsley v Scunthorpe United
Tranmere Rovers v Mansfield Town
York City v Burnley
Notts County v Fleetwood Town
Sheffield United v Burton Albion
Oldham Athletic v Derby County
Carlisle United v Blackburn Rovers
Morecambe v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Nottingham Forest v Hartlepool United
Leeds United v Chesterfield
Huddersfield Town v Bradford City
Rotherham United v Sheffield Wednesday
Port Vale v Walsall
Gillingham v Bristol City
AFC Bournemouth v Portsmouth
Wycombe Wanderers v Leicester City
Brentford v Dagenham & Redbridge
Exeter City v Queens Park Rangers
Charlton Athletic v Oxford United
Southend United v Yeovil Town
Millwall v AFC Wimbledon
Swindon Town v Torquay United
Birmingham City v Plymouth Argyle
Stevenage v Ipswich Town
Cheltenham Town v Crawley Town
Bristol Rovers v Watford
Northampton Town v Milton Keynes Dons
Leyton Orient v Coventry City
Colchester United v Peterborough United
Brighton & Hove Albion v Newport County
