2011 winners Blues have been drawn at home to current holders Swansea City in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Lee Clark's side booked their place in the next stage having seen off Yeovil Town on penalties following a thrilling 3-3 draw at Huish Park.

Their reward is a clash against Michael Laudrup's stylish Swans, who won last season's competition courtesy of a final victory over Bradford City at Wembley.

The tie will take place at St. Andrew's during the week commencing 23 September.

Blues last played Swansea on home soil back in December 2008, when the two teams played out a goalless draw in the Championship.
