The Carabao Cup Round Four draw will be made live on Sky Sports, following the Brighton and Hove Albion v Portsmouth Round Two tie tomorrow. The Round Four draw will be made on an either/or basis as the Round Three fixtures will not yet have been completed. This is to help enable the EFL, Clubs and broadcasters to plan with additional clarity over a busy period of fixtures.
Brentford face Southampton in a Second Round tie this evening, Wednesday 16 September. They reached this stage by beating Wycombe Wanderers last week. The winner of the tie will face the winner of West Bromwich Albion v Harrogate Town, which also takes place tonight. Those four teams will be one ball in the next draw tomorrow, Thursday 17 September.
Sky Sports presenter Laura Woods will host the draw, with former Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie selecting the ties. Round Three ties will take place week commencing 21 September with Round Four being played the following week commencing 28 September.
