The draw will be carried out by former France and Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Petit, Carabao’s CEO Sathien Setthasit, the British Ambassador to Thailand, Brian Davidson, and the EFL’s chief executive Shaun Harvey.

12th Man- Why pick on Stevenage? With our record I would fear any of the potential opponents.

The Blades at home could be really embarrassing if we have a typical MM set up for a cup tie. I wouldn't fancy us against Pompey. I've got a feeling we'll get Colchester.


Just for once McCarthy, while you're here, make a bl***y effort and win us a cup tie !
