Brentford will find out their Carabao Cup Second Round opponents this evening.
The Bees booked their place in tonight's draw with a 3-1 win over AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday. Goals from Romaine Sawyers, Ollie Watkins and Justin Shaibu put Brentford into the draw, which takes place live on Sky Sports News tonight after the Bury v Sunderland televised Round One tie.
The draw, which remains seeded and unseeded, has been regionalised to avoid a fixture scheduling complication involving West Ham United and Newport County, who have both been given special dispensation by the EFL Board to play their Round Two ties away from their home grounds.
Newport County have been placed in the Northern half of the draw to ensure there is no chance of the two teams being drawn together.
Brentford are ball number 2 in the southern Seeds and can face any one of the following southern Non-Seeds:
14. Birmingham City
15. Bristol City
16. Bristol Rovers
17. Burton Albion
18. Charlton Athletic
19. Cheltenham Town
20. Ipswich Town
22. MK Dons
23. Queens Park Rangers
24. Wolverhampton Wanderers
The tie will be played in the week commencing Monday 21 August and details of the game will be announced as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, the EFL have today confirmed that the Round Three draw, in conjunction with cup sponsors Carabao, will take place in Beijing, China on August 24, 2017. Full details to be announced in due course.
