How vulgar. Still, no sponsor, so that's an improvement.

If I #VoteLeave, does that mean Cardiff and Newport are booted out of the EFL?

Ben Kennedy scored the only goal as League Two Stevenage shocked the Championship side Ipswich with a 1-0 EFL Cup win at Portman Road. Kennedy was quickest to react after Dean Gerken could only parry a deflected shot from Charlie Lee eight minutes after the interval.

There was another victory for a League Two side over a Championship opponent thanks to Luke Berry’s extra-time goal for Cambridge United against Sheffield Wednesday. With the tie looking to be heading for penalties at 1-1, Berry popped up to fire home the winner in the 118th minute.

Jack Dunn scored a hat-trick for Morecambe as the Championship side Rotherham were sent packing in an extra-time 5-4 defeat.

Ryan Harley scored in the 100th minute to give Exeter a 1-0 win over Brentford and Kevin van Veen struck twice in extra time to give Scunthorpe a 2-0 victory against Notts County.

The substitute Ryan Lowe scored both Crewe goals as they came from behind to beat Sheffield United 2-1 and Matthew Dolan scored from inside his own half as Yeovil sprang another shock by beating Walsall 2-0.

Northampton needed a John-Joe O’Toole header in extra-time to beat Barnsley 2-1 and Liam Sercombe was Oxford’s hero when he grabbed the winner in the 1-0 victory over Birmingham.

Coventry beat Portsmouth 3-2, Blackpool overcame Bolton 4-2 and Accrington beat Bradford 11-10 on penalties after the game had finished 0-0.

Louis Dodds struck the winner 13 minutes from time to earn Shrewsbury a 2-1 victory over Huddersfield. Ajay Leitch-Smith had given the Shrews a flying start with a first-minute opener. Elias Kachunga hauled Huddersfield level six minutes before the break but Dodds latched on to Ivan Toney’s ball to win the game.

Josh Law popped up with an 83rd-minute winner to send through with a 2-1 win over Wigan and Anthony Stokes took his goal tally for the season to three with two for Blackburn in their 3-1 win at Mansfield.

Eoin Doyle’s last-minute goal gave Preston a 1-0 triumph over Hartlepool and Tammy Abraham’s second goal in two games earned Bristol City a 1-0 win at Wycombe.

Conor Coady helped Wolves to a 2-1 victory over Crawley and first-half goals from Joey van den Berg and Roy Beerens gave Reading a 2-0 win over Plymouth.

Cauley Woodrow scored twice to help Fulham to a 3-2 win at Leyton Orient and Jamie Murphy also scored twice as Brighton eased past Colchester 4-0.

Richard Keogh gave Derby a 1-0 victory over Grimsby, Millwall safely progressed to the second round after a 4-0 win at Barnet and Jamie Ward’s stoppage-time winner helped Nottingham Forest to a 2-1 triumph at Doncaster.

There were also wins for MK Dons, Peterborough, Gillingham, Rochdale, Carlisle and Cheltenham.

Luton vs. Aston Villa is the TV game tonight.

Super sub Jack Dunn!!! Can't wait for him to be released from us in two years time. 

Is the 2nd round draw on Saturday? I know our request for the game to be an away trip has been accepted so we have extra time to finish the main stand off.

I'd have thought that it will either be in tonight's programme after Luton/Villa, or during tomorrow's Bristol Rovers/Cardiff tie. Could be completely wrong though.

What does that have to do with anything?

Draw is tonight on SSN, presumably after the last 3 games finish.

I'll admit,  after Blues got deservedly dumped out by Oxford yesterday, it was nice to see that Villa showed a bit of solidarity and also didn't show up either.

 

Of course since we were at home there's still an argument that our result was worse but I'm grasping at straws here

Luton Town have been rewarded with a home tie against Leeds United, who defeated Fleetwood Town 5-4 on penalties. QPR, Wednesday's other victors from the spot when they defeated Swindon after a 2-2 draw, got a home game against Rochdale.

Burton Albion got themselves a plum draw for the second round of the League Cup, newly branded as the EFL Cup from this season, when they were handed a home game against Liverpool.

Albion, managed by an Anfield old boy Nigel Clough, defeated Bury 3-2 after extra time and started their first ever season in the Championship only on Saturday against another of his former clubs, Nottingham Forest, and lost it 4-3.

Liverpool, eight times winners of the League Cup, the last of them in 2012 under Kenny Dalglish, got to the final last year and lost it on penalties to Manchester City after a 1-1 draw.

Chelsea will host one of the Bristol clubs at Stamford Bridge – depending on the winner of the Bristol Rovers v Cardiff City game on Thursday, as the draw was seeded. Newcastle United will take on Cheltenham Town, who provided the upset of Tuesday with a 1-0 home win over Charlton. Everton will face Yeovil Town for the first time in a competitive fixture and Sunderland get to face lowly Shrewsbury Town, which may provoke unhappy memories for the new manager David Moyes, who lost a third-round FA Cup tie against them with Everton 13 years ago.

Millwall face Nottingham Forest, Accrington play Burnley in a Lancashire derby and Norwich City, the 1985 winners when it was called the Milk Cup, will face Coventry City, Crystal Palace will host Blackpool and Watford will take on Gillingham at Vicarage Road.

Full Second Round draw:

QPR v Rochdale
Scunthorpe v Cardiff/Bristol City
Watford v Gillingham
Peterborough v Swansea
Everton v Yeovil
Millwall v Nottm Forest
Sunderland v Shrewsbury
Luton v Leeds
Chelsea v Bristol Rovers/Bristol City
Burton v Liverpool
Blackburn v Crewe
Accrington v Burnley
Crystal Palace v Blackpool
Morecambe v Bournemouth
Preston v Oldham
Oxford v Brighton
Reading v MK Dons
Fulham v Middlesbrough
Newcastle v Cheltenham
Exeter v Hull
Derby v Carlisle
Northampton v West Brom
Wolves v Cambridge
Stevenage v Stoke
Norwich v Coventry

Ties to be played week commencing August 22

I have no idea what the logic is behind our draw.

Cardiff play Bristol Rovers...and if Rovers win, we play Rovers.

BUT if Cardiff win, we don't play Cardiff. We play Bristol City.

Wut?

P.S. hullo 2nd round, it's been a while.
