GARETH Ainsworth will be reunited with his former manager Ian Holloway after Wanderers were drawn with Millwall in the first round of the Capital One Cup.

The Blues boss played under Holloway for many years at QPR, helping the Hoops to promotion from League One along the way.

They're set for an emotional reunion after Wycombe were drawn away to the Lions in the opening round of next season's competition.

The tie at the New Den will be played in the week begining August 11.

The sides were drawn against each other in the first round of the competition at Adams Park in 2010, with Millwall triumphing 2-1.

Elsewhere in the draw MK Dons will host AFC Wimbledon - the protest club set up after the original Wimbledon's franchise move to north Bucks - and there's a Hertfordshire derby as Stevenage host Watford.

Meanwhile the fixtures for the new League Two campaign will be revealed tomorrow morning.
