Watford are one of 18 seeds in the southern section of the Capital One Cup first round draw

This Is Local London: Picture: Action Images Picture: Action Images

Watford will be one of 18 seeds in the southern section of the Capital One Cup first round draw and there is a small chance the Hornets could end up facing rivals Luton Town. 

The competition is split regionally north and south in the first round, with seedings determined by the final league positions of the clubs.

The draw takes place next Tuesday and Beppe Sannino's men have a one in 18 chance of facing old rivals Luton in the first round with the same odds of securing a ‘local’ clash against either Stevenage or Wycombe Wanderers.

Should the Hornets be drawn away, the furthest they may have to travel is Plymouth Argyle.

The outcome of the first round draw will be announced at 10am next Tuesday, the day before the new Football League fixtures are announced.

South seeds: AFC Bournemouth; Birmingham City; Brentford; Brighton & Hove Albion; Bristol City; Cardiff City; Charlton Athletic; Ipswich Town; Leyton Orient; Millwall; Milton Keynes Dons; Peterborough United; Reading; Swindon Town; Walsall; Watford; Wolverhampton Wanderers; Yeovil Town.

South non-seeds: AFC Wimbledon; Cambridge United; Cheltenham Town; Colchester United; Coventry City; Crawley Town; Dagenham & Redbridge; Exeter City; Gillingham; Luton Town; Newport County; Northampton Town; Oxford United; Plymouth Argyle; Portsmouth; Southend United; Stevenage; Wycombe Wanderers.

I'm hoping we avoid Luton. There's a good chance that a bunch of numptys that don't usually go to either club's games will turn up for a scrap with each other.

On a separate note just watched a re-run of Spurs v Arsenal from 2008 on Sky, in goal for both teams were Almunia & Gomes, result a 4 - 4 draw, hopefully a one off, lol

It's 24.9 miles from Watford to Stevenage, which makes it closer than Wimbledon and Dagenham.

I've heard nothing about this on the interblag. Where'd you read this?

Rantie is enthusiastic but not very good from what I've seen. Still young-ish at 23.

Ritchie is a solid Championship winger and scores goals at a decent rate. Though I believe he was the one that dived for Bournemouth's penalty in the Away fixture.

Nope, it was their number 7 mark Pugh. Ritchie was the one with the dodgy hair cut. Quite short and good on the ball but nothing special. Still....we are looking at young British players which is good.

Is this the LEAGUE Cup we're talking about? At least that was what it was called when it started about 40-50 years ago. Then it was the Milk Cup, but I've lost track of the many sponsors since then, must be my age, anyone care to list all of the names it's been called? - something to while away the time during a no-news close-season!

Folks I live in Hereford and today has totally brought home how lucky we are that the red-helmeted con man Bent Baz has left our club.

Hereford's been poorly run and just last week a dude who's spent years in jail for armed robbery and fraud was allowed to assume control of Hereford. He made all sorts of promises, hasn't delivered and Hereford have now been relegated 2 divisions. This could easily have happened to us and, despite how last season was poor, at least we've got decent owners.
