Bolton are one of 17 seeded teams in the northern split for the EFL Cup first round draw, which will take place on Friday.

The draw for the first round of the competition will take place at 13:00BST and streamed live online from Bangkok, Thailand, the home of title sponsor, Carabao Energy Drink.

70 EFL clubs will make up the draw, with Hull City and Middlesbrough receiving a bye straight through to the second round, and the sides have been regionalised in order to reduce travelling time for supporters in the opening week of the new campaign.

Bolton are two-time beaten finalists in the newly-named Carabao Cup, losing in both 1995 and 2004, while last season's efforts came to an end at the first hurdle when they were beaten 4-2 at Blackpool, after extra-time.
