Seeded opposition await in First Round draw...

THE Saddlers will face seeded opposition in the first round of the 2015/16 Capital One Cup. 

Dean Smith's men were named amongst the 36 unseeded teams in the competition and could face Championship opposition in the opening round. 

Goals from Mal Benning and Kieron Morris helped secure a 2-1 away victory over League One newcomers Southend United in the first round of last seasons competition. 

Though our Capital One Cup run came to a halt a game later against Crystal Palace with Dwight Gayle bagging a first half hat-trick at the Banks's.

The last time the Saddlers reached the third round of the competition was in 2002/03 before eventually falling to Blackburn Rovers on penalties.

The draw for the 2015/16 Capital One Cup First Round takes place at 10am on Tuesday 16th June.
