The Carabao Cup draw took place this afternoon.

Town’s 3-0 win over Bristol Rovers yesterday, with goals from Freddie Sears (2) and Luke Chambers, sees them in the Second Round South draw.

Round three is scheduled for September 22/23 – after that trip to Bristol and before the visit of Rochdale.

Round four is scheduled for September 29/20 – after the game against Rochdale and before a trip to MK Dons.

The competition doesn’t then continue until December 22/23.
