Town to Learn First Opponents of 2012/13
Wednesday, 13th Jun 2012 14:08
Town will learn their first opponents of the 2012/13 season on Thursday at 9.30am when the draw for the first round of the Capital One Cup – the League Cup’s latest guise - is announced. The 2012/13 campaign, which has been pushed back a couple of weeks due to the Olympics, starts with the first round ties which will be played in the week commencing August 13th.
The Blues are in the seeded group of southern clubs in the regionally-based draw. Last year, Town went down 2-1 to League Two Northampton at home at the first hurdle having been victorious on long away trips to Exeter and Shrewsbury in the previous two seasons.
The Championship fixtures for the 2012/13 campaign will be released on Monday at 9am when they will be available on TWTD.

The long, slow decline in Town’s fortunes since we became part of the mysterious and opaque ‘Marcus Evans Business Empire’ has been both hugely depressing and acutely embarrassing. But if we’re honest, Town’s decline pre-dates the much-maligned Marcus Evans’s arrival by decades. Both on and off the pitch.
