The Blades creped through the second round by beating Bury at Bramall Lane last Tuesday night, Christian Nadé scoring the only goal of the game.
Now, the Sheffield faithful have been drawn against Championship side Birmingham City, who is managed by former Blades boss Steve Bruce.
The two teams have only met once in the League Cup before this tie; this came during the 1966/67 season where the Midlands side came away with a 3-2 win at Bramall Lane.
