Robins home to Us in Carabao Cup

15 June 2018

Cheltenham Town will play at home to Colchester United in the first round of this season's Carabao Cup.

The match will mean a quick return to the Jonny Rocks Stadium for Harry Pell, who moved to Colchester from the Robins earlier this summer.

It will be the second time that the two teams have met in the competition. Back in 2004 Colchester defeated the Robins 2-1 at their old Layer Road ground in a first round tie.

The match is scheduled to take place on Tuesday 14 August and full confirmed details including ticket prices will follow in due course. 

This season there are some format changes to the Carabao Cup. The draw is no longer seeded so it is possible to play any team in the first and second rounds.

Other changes include the removal of extra-time from drawn ties, which will now go straight to penalties using the traditional ABAB format, and the use of VAR at all fixtures played on a Premier League ground.
