Town Handed Home Tie In Carabao Cup

Forest Green To Head To SN1

15 June 2018

Swindon Town have been drawn at home to Forest Green Rovers in the First Round of the Carabao Cup.

The tie will be played at The Energy Check County Ground the week commencing Monday 13th August.

Town bowed out of the competition at the first hurdle last season after pushing Championship outfit Norwich City all the way at Carrow Road.

Extra-time has been removed from the Carabao Cup for the 2018/19 campaign, meaning that the game will go straight to a penalty shootout if the scores are level after 90 minutes.

And the format of the penalty shootout has also changed, reverting back to the traditional format with the ABBA system now scrapped.

Dates and ticket details for this fixture will be announced in due course.
