Bullard said: “I’m absolutely buzzing to be making the draw, it’s a real honour.

“One the proudest moments in my career was playing in the League Cup final in 2006 with Wigan Athletic.

“Even though the result didn’t go our way, to play in a cup final in front of all of my family and almost 70,000 fans was a very special occasion.”
