Frank Lampard's first cup game as Derby County manager will be away to Oldham Athletic following the draw for the first round of the Carabao Cup.

Lampard won the competition twice as a player with Chelsea, and the tie was one of 35 first-round fixtures drawn in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.

Beaten Championship play-off finalists Aston Villa will travel to League Two side Yeovil Town.

Last season's semi-finalists Bristol City will host Plymouth in round one.

Lee Johnson's side beat Argyle 5-0 at the same stage last season before going on to defeat four top-flight clubs on their way to the last four, where they lost to eventual winners Manchester City over two legs.

The only relegated Premier League side in the draw, West Bromwich Albion, face a tricky-looking tie at home to newly-promoted League One side Luton Town.

Third-tier Sunderland will host Championship club Sheffield Wednesday, big-spending Nottingham Forest will meet Bury and Leeds United, under new boss Marcelo Bielsa, have been drawn at home to Bolton.

Ties will be played in the week commencing Monday, 13 August.
