This is not the draw we wanted and Newcastle seem to have a tough time with getting lower league opponents of late. Steve Bruce wants to make it a priority to have a cup run this season. This will have to start with a home draw against Leicester City.
The second round of the Carabao Cup will start the week of August 26th. Let’s hope Newcastle can be spurred on by the home crowd for this tough tie.
