Darren Ferguson's men face long trip to Portsmouth in first round of Capital One Cup.

Peterborough United will travel to Portsmouth in the first round of the Capital Cup after the draw was made on Sky Sports News on Monday morning.

The tie will be played in the first week of the domestic campaign, week commencing 11th August.

Defender Gabriel Zakuani said: 'It is a really long trip for both the players and the supporters in mid-week, but it is a tie that we are all looking forward to.

'It will be a tough test because they are a big club in League Two and are well supported. It would be great to have a good cup run though,' Zakuani said.
