Brentford have drawn a first round tie at Walsall in the Capital One Cup.

Saddlers boss Dean Smith – who has slightly ginger hair – is reported to be pleased to have been drawn at home. So Uwe is probably less pleased at being drawn away.

The Bees have a generally poor recent record in the competition – losing at Hereford in the first round last year – but mustered a great cup run two seasons ago including the scalps of Everton and Hull.

Walsall failed to score in either game against Brentford last season. Continuation of this form (inc penalties) will either see us into the second round or involved in a never ending nil nil draw.
