  • City await Carabao Cup draw

It seems unusual for Blues fans to be looking forward to the second round draw.

What time is the Carabao Cup second round draw?

The draw will follow the conclusion of tonight's televised tie between Bury and Sunderland at Gigg Lane.

Teams will decide their fate when the draw takes place this evening.

The Whites were drawn to play the tie away from home but Newport were given permission by the EFL to play any second round tie away from home due to the resurfacing of their Rodney Parade pitch.

Preston, though, were then dumped out of of the Carabao Cup three days later through a 3-2 defeat at League Two hosts Accrington.

A number of clubs in the Southern section, including Norwich, Charlton, Brentford and Watford, all tweeted about their confusion.

"It's a great game for my players, national television, home tie, crowd will be excited and what an opportunity for them to go and show people what good players they are".

Meanwhile, Fulham have been drawn at home to League One side Bristol Rovers.

Brentford tweeted: "we will be at home to QPR", before following up with "or we might be away, we're not quite sure!".
