Wigan Athletic will travel to Rotherham in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Paul Cook's men will face the Millers, who were also promoted to the Championship last term, at the New York Stadium in the week starting August 13.

The first round draw took place at Vietnam’s largest city, Ho Chi Minh this morning after heading out on the road to Bangkok in Thailand 12 months ago.

And unlike previous seasons, there was no seeding system for the first round, instead the 70 teams in the hat were split into a north and south section.

Latics reached the second round last season, where they lost 4-1 to Aston Villa.
