We have been drawn against Polish side Wisla Krakow in the first round of the UEFA Cup.

The draw sees us play the first leg at home before travelling to Poland. The legs are scheduled for September 18 and October 2 respectively.

The winners of the 40 first round ties go into the group stages of the competition.

Wisla Krakow are top of the Polish league after three wins in their opening three games.

They kicked-off their European campaign in the Champions League but were eliminated 4-1 on aggregate by Barcelona. However, they won their home leg 1-0.

Our first-ever match in Europe was against Polish opposition in the European Cup of 1961-62 winning 10-5 on aggregate against Gornik Zabrze.
