Chairboys Draw Lions In Carling Cup


Wycombe Wanderers have been drawn to play at home to Championship newcomers Millwall in the first-round of the Carling Cup.

The game will be played at Adams Park week commencing 9th August.

The Lions were promoted to the Championship last season after finishing third in League One and going on to defeat Swindon Town 1-0 in the play-off final at Wembley.

Their league record last season was Won-24, Drawn-13 and Lost-9. Interestingly, their only home defeat came at the hands of Wycombe who won 2-0 at the New Den in November before completing a remarkable double over the Lions by beating them 1-0 at Adams Park in February.

Millwall were knocked out of last season's Carling Cup in the second round at the hands of West Ham United, and departed the FA Cup in a third round replay at Derby County.


The Chairboys were relegated to the basement division last season after finishing 22nd in League One.

Since playing Chelsea in the semi-final of the Carling Cup in 2007, Wycombe have lost in the first round of the competition each year, going out to Plymouth, Birmingham and Peterborough in the last three seasons.

They were also knocked out of last season's FA Cup at the first-round stage, losing 2-0 in a replay at Brighton.


With 13 players (including loanees) having left Adams Park at the end of last season and only one new face having been signed since in the shape of keeper Nikki Bull, Wycombe fans are becoming increasingly keen to discover who else will be added to their ranks before they face the Lions in just under 8 weeks time.
