We have just been drawn against Burton Albion in the League Cup. We have never played them in a competitive game before.
The newly-promoted Championship side beat Bury 3-2 in the First Round.
Aside from their win over Bury, they’ve not enjoyed the greatest start to the new season, losing 4-3 to Nottingham Forest on the opening day.
They are managed by former Liverpool striker, Nigel Clough.
It was a delayed draw, with the first balls not coming out of the hat until at least half an hour after they were supposed to.
Here’s what people have been saying about our upcoming tie:
Burton away? Dream tie for us ground bores.

So, we play Burton Albion before the window closes? Bake Sale the Holy Balotelli out of that one. Wisdom gets the armband.

You almost kind of forget that Nigel Clough played for us don’t you?

Let’s be honest…if we do get a shit draw then either Nigel Clough’s team selection or the club’s ticket policy will get the blame
