Hammers to face Crewe

West Ham United will host Crewe Alexandra in the second round of the newly branded Capital One Cup, following Wednesday afternoon's draw.

It will be the first time the two sides have met since a 1-1 draw in the Championship back in 2005, when Teddy Sheringham looked like he had bagged the winner until Steve Jones scored an added-time equaliser. The match could see Nicky Maynard line up against the side he played for until 2008 before moving to Bristol City.

West Ham United will be looking to improve on last season's League Cup showing, when they were knocked out at the first hurdle by Aldershot Town after being reduced to ten men. The Hammers have reached the League Cup final twice before, finishing as runners up to West Bromwich Albion in 1966 and Liverpool in 1981.

All ties will take place in the week commencing 27 August, with the final taking place on 24 February 2013. whufc.com will bring ticket news as soon as it is available.
