Brentford to host Newcastle United in Quarter Final of Carabao Cup

Bees face Magpies in Last Eight

1 October 2020

Brentford will host Newcastle United in our first ever Carabao Cup Quarter Final.

The tie will be played at our new home in the week of 21 December and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. 

We booked our spot in the Last Eight tonight with a 3-0 victory over Fulham. Marcus Forss got the first-half goal before Said Benrahma took centre-stage with a sublime brace after the break. The Whites joined Wycombe Wanderers, Southampton, and West Bromwich Albion in exiting at the hands of Thomas Frank's side this term. 

Newcastle United's path to the Last Eight was far less straight-forward. Steve Bruce's side needed an 87th minute Jonjo Shelvey goal to force penalties against Sky Bet League Two side Newport County. Joelinton missed for The Magpies but Ryan Taylor and then Brandon Cooper failed from 12 yards for the hosts as United scraped through. The earlier rounds saw a 1-0 win over Blackburn Rovers and then a 7-0 demolition of Morecambe in Round Three. 

Further match details will be announced in due course.
