Carabao Cup round two draw: Nottingham Forest face Newcastle

8:53 pm, 16th August 2018

Forest met Newcastle at the same stage of last season’s competition, the Championship side claiming a 3-2 victory after extra-time at St James’ Park.

The 13 Premier League teams who are not in Europe join the competition in this round, with Leicester City drawn against Jamie Vardy’s former side Fleetwood and Everton at home to Rotherham.

Elsewhere in the northern section, Huddersfield are away to Stoke and Burton play Aston Villa, who have won this competition five times.

The meeting of south coast rivals Brighton and Southampton is one of the eye-catching draws in the southern section, and there is also a London derby as Wimbledon host West Ham.

Exeter City’s reward for beating Ipswich is a trip to Fulham and fellow League Two side Milton Keynes travel to Bournemouth, with 2013 winners Swansea at home to Crystal Palace.
