Away at Blackburn!

GRIMSBY have been drawn against Premiership giants Blackburn Rovers in the Second Round of the Carling Cup. Town have never won at Ewood Park despite playing their 30 times, but will fancy their chances of causing an upset in a competition in which they have claimed a few scalps in recent years.

Blackburn finished last season in tenth position, but this year have a new manager in Paul Ince. Alan Buckley and Ince of course locked horns three times last season when the former England midfielder was manager of MK Dons. With Grimsby losing all three games, including the JPT Final at Wembley, Alan Buckley will be keen to gain revenge on his Blackburn counterpart.

Carling Cup second round draw:

Ipswich v Colchester
Coventry v Newcastle
Hartlepool v West Brom
West Ham v Macclesfield
Huddersfield v Sheff Utd
Cardiff v MK Dons
Swansea v Hull
Rotherham v Wolverhampton
Brighton v Man City
Reading v Luton
Blackburn v Grimsby
Wigan v Notts County
Leeds v Crystal Palace
Crewe v Bristol City
Middlesbrough v Yeovil
Fulham v Leicester
QPR v Carlisle
Nottm Forest v Sunderland
Burnley v Oldham
Southampton v Birmingham
Bolton v Northampton
Watford v Darlington
Preston v Derby
Cheltenham v Stoke

The ties will be played on the week beginning 25 August.
