Doncaster Rovers will host Leeds United in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

It will be the third time in five seasons that the Yorkshire rivals have met at the Keepmoat Stadium in this competition.

Leeds won 3-1 in 2013 and also prevailed 2-1 in 2011.

Since Doncaster beat Leeds in the 2008 League One play-off final at Wembley they have beaten the Whites just once in eight attempts, a 2-1 win at Elland Road in the Championship when the two teams last met, in March last year.

The tie will be played during the week commencing Monday, August 10.

Rovers were knocked out by Fulham last season after reaching the third round.
