Bolton will travel to Shrewsbury Town in August after the draw was made for the first round of the Capital One Cup.

The draw, which was made on Monday morning, will see Wanderers travel to Greenhous Meadow for the second time in less than three weeks - with the two sides also meeting in a pre-season friendly on July 20th.

The tie will take place in the week commencing Monday 5th August 2013 and will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs since February 1992, when a solitary goal from Andy Walker gave Wanderers victory in a Division 3 fixture at Burnden Park.

The two sides last faced off in the League Cup at the second round stage in 1984. After a 2-2 draw at Gay Meadow, Bolton advanced into the third round with a 2-1 victory in the second leg.

Dougie Freedman's side enter the competition at the first round stage for the first time since 2000/01, when the Trotters fell to Macclesfield Town. Wanderers were eliminated at the second round stage last season, going down to a shock 2-1 defeat at Crawley Town.
