Oxford United handed home tie with Bournemouth
Oxford United have been handed a home tie with AFC Bournemouth in the first round of the Capital One Cup.
The U's will host the Cherries on Tuesday, August 14 at the Kassam Stadium.
United were certain to face a team higher up the Football League pyramid due to the competition's seeding.
But while a match against Bournemouth does not have the glamour of last year's first round tie against Championship side Cardiff, the fact it is at home will be a big boost for the club - with the game generating extra revenue.
