Newcastle Get Another Home Draw In League Cup

Newcastle have been drawn against Sheffield Wednesday at home in the 3rd round of the League Cup, after successfully getting through the 3rd round with a 4-1 home win over Northampton Town tonight.

Newcastle drew the Owls and Sunderland have drawn Manchester City at home, after they managed to beat Exeter City 6-3 at the Stadium of Light tonight.


Amazingly Tottenham drew Arsenal at White Hart Lane, and other all Premier League ties are Sunderland vs Manchester City, Leicester vs West Ham – and possibly Norwich vs West Brom.

Here’s the full 3rd round draw of the Capital One Cup.

Middlesbrough v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Norwich City v West Bromwich Albion
Hull City v Swansea City
Leicester City v West Ham United
Aston Villa v Birmingham City
Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal
Manchester United v Ipswich Town
Liverpool v Carlisle United
Crystal Palace v Charlton Athletic
Fulham v Stoke City
Sunderland v Manchester City
Newcastle United v Sheffield Wednesday
Reading v Barnsley or Everton
Preston North End v Bournemouth
Walsall v Chelsea
Milton Keynes Dons v Southampton

If Newcastle win this game, we will be in the round of the last 16 – and one game off reaching the quarter-finals of the competition – which is where we reached last season before going out at Tottenham 4-0.

Comments welcome.
