Carling Cup Draw

Last updated : 13 July 2004 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
It could have been worse, but as a seeded club in the first round, we ended up with a draw against one of the bottom 35 teams of the Football League.

All of which meant that we travel to Brisbane Road to face Leyton Orient in the week beginning August 23. Can we overcome a jinx which has not seen Bournemouth win away at Brisbane Road since May 24, 1949?? On that occassion we won 3-2 in the old Third Division (South)!

Other interesting First Round ties see Leeds take on Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield, and in the Southern half of the draw, Oxford play Reading and West Ham entertain Southend.
