Charlton have been drawn away to Derby County in the next round of the league cup. They are a team we will play anyway twice this season and, given the home advantage, they are more likely to go through. We rarely seem to get interesting ties, but at least we are not playing Huddersfield.
Our record in all competitive matches at Derby is not as bad as I thought: the Rams have won 17 matches, Charlton 12 and 10 have been drawn. However, we last won a game there in the Premier League in 1999, although there have been some draws since then. We were, of course, beaten by them in the FA Cup final in 1946.
