Colchester United will travel to Championship outfit Charlton Athletic in the first round of the Capital One Cup, during the week commencing August 11.

The U’s have met the Addicks once before in this competition, with the south London side emerging victorious 3-2 at Layer Road, after a replay, in January 1979.

The clubs’ last meeting came in March 2012 when goals from Anthony Wordsworth and Stephen Gillespie gave the U’s a 2-0 victory in League One.
