A total of 35 fixtures will be drawn, which will include Carabao Cup debutants Sutton United and newly promoted Hartlepool United.

Blackpool were unfortunate to be knocked out at the first round stage last season, losing on penalties to Stoke City after playing out a goalless draw at the bet365 Stadium.

Fleetwood Town meanwhile, made it to the third round, where they were beaten by top flight side Everton.

Sheffield United will be included in the draw, but fellow Championship newcomers West Brom and Fulham join the competition in round two alongside the Premier League clubs that are not competing in Europe.
