The second round draw for the Carabao Cup will take place at Salford City’s Peninsula Stadium after Tuesday’s first round ties, it has been confirmed.

Televised live on Sky Sports, Laura Woods will host the draw following the conclusion of Salford’s tie with Leeds United.

The winning teams from the first round will be joined in the hat for the second round by the 13 Premier League sides not involved in European competitions, alongside Championship duo Cardiff City and Fulham.

Among those entering the draw are Leicester City, Aston Villa and Newcastle United, with the seven remaining top-flight clubs beginning their involvement from the third round.

The second round draw will be regionalised into North and South sections, with fixtures scheduled to take place in the week commencing August 26.

That could lead to a potential fixture clash if Lincoln City defeat Huddersfield Town in their first round tie.

The Imps are due to host Manchester United U21s in the Leasing.com Trophy on Tuesday, August 27, although the date for that match is subject to change.
