League Cup[edit]

Hull City received a home match against local League Two side Rotherham United in the first round of the League Cup drawn on 14 June 2012.[133] Following agreement between the clubs the date of the fixture was brought forward to Saturday 11 August 2012 and was the first competitive match of the 2012–13 season.[134] Hull progressed to the next round winning 7–6 after a penalty shoot-out following a 1–1 draw at full-time and no further scoring during extra time.[135] In the draw for the second round on 15 August 2012 Hull were given another local match away to League One side Doncaster Rovers.[136] The match took place on 28 August 2012 at the Keepmoat Stadium and Doncaster won 3–2 after Hull had taken a two goal lead.[137] The game was marred by a tackle on Tom Cairney that would result in him missing three-months of the season and the sending off of Paul McKenna who had come on as a substitute for Cairney.
