Lads Draw Brighton
Steve Bruce's Sunderland face a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion in the League Cup 2nd round after the draw this evening.
Brighton knocked out Gillingham 1-0 at home in the 1st round.
The draw was seeded for the second round so we couldn't face a Premier League or upper half Championship club.
Sunderland will look to the League Cup as a top priority this season after securing themselves as an established Premier League Club.
