The old foe return

West Ham United have drawn Millwall in the second round of the Carling Cup.

The two local rivals get the chance to go head-to-head once again after tonight's Carling Cup second round draw pitched them together.

With Premier League West Ham gaining home advantage, the League One side will go into the game as massive underdogs - although it is nearly twenty years since United last beat their most bitter of rivals.

Since the Irons won a Division Two fixture 3-1 at the Boleyn back in February 1991, the teams have met six times with the Lions winning three and the remainder drawn. Most recently, the sides drew 1-1 in a Championship fixture at the Boleyn four years ago.

The tie is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, 26th August; ticket details to be confirmed.
