The Carling Cup Round One draw was made this morning and Barnsley have been handed a home tie with Rochdale to look forward to.

Rochdale won promotion from League 2 last season, finishing 3rd to Bournemouth and Notts County.

It will be the first meeting between the two sides since the 1996/97 season, when the Reds beat Rochdale in the League Cup 3-2, over two legs as it was then, with the goals coming from Paul Wilkinson (2) and Neil Redfearn.

The tie will be played in the week commencing August 9th.
