The round one Carabao Cup draw is split into northern and southern sections, with matches scheduled to take place week commencing August 9 - the midweek after club's opening league game.

However, clubs are able to agree an alternative date between July 31 and August 4, the EFL have said.

Town travel to Stoke after their opening league game, against Danny Cowley's Portsmouth.

Last season the Cod Army made it to the third round, before being defeated at the hands of Carlo Ancelotti's Everton.

Last time out in the Papa John's Trophy, the Cod Army were knocked out by League One champions Hull City in a thrilling encounter, at the last 16 stage.
