Bolton Wanderers have been drawn at home against newly promoted Burton Albion in this year's capital one cup first round.

The Wanderers will hope to better last year's efforts in the cup, where they got to the third round before being knocked out by the Premier League champions and eventual Capital One Cup winners, Chelsea.

Last season, under the stewardship of Jimmy Flloyd-Hasslebank, Burton stormed League Two, finishing winners on 94 points, five points ahead of their nearest competitor. They won more games than anyone else, with 28 victories over the course of the campaign, and lost the least amount too, as they only fell to defeat eight times all year. They also scored the most goals in League 2, with 69.

There will by 36 teams playing in the first round of the competition, with seeded teams playing against unseeded teams. The fixtures are to be played in the week commencing August 10, 2015, with the Wanderes drawn to play at home in the Macron Stadium.

With such a seemingly dull fixture, one must ask, is the Capital Cup even worth caring about? Let us know below!
