What time is the Carabao Cup second round draw?

"It's a great game for my players, national television, home tie, crowd will be excited and what an opportunity for them to go and show people what good players they are".

Daniel Farke's side played Charlton recently in the penultimate match of their pre-season preparations, winning 2-0 at The Valley thanks to goals from Yanic Wildschut and Steven Naismith.

The draw took place with the 25 highest-placed teams from last season's league campaign all seeded.

It will be the first meeting of the two sides in this competition, and Rovers say ticketing arrangements will be confirmed in due course.

Sunderland - who Clark has labelled the biggest club outside the Premier League - face League One Shakers at Gigg Lane in the first round (KO 7.45pm).

Being away would have made it harder, so we are pleased to be at home.

Following their 3-1 away win over Coventry City on Tuesday night, Rovers' name will be in the hat for tonight's draw.

Fellow debutante Caleb Ekuban was also on target for the Whites who made it two wins out of two under new head coach Thomas Christiansen following Sunday's 3-2 success at opening weekend Championship hosts Bolton Wanderers.
