READ | Millers drawn at home to Wigan in Carabao Cup first round

15 June 2018

Rotherham United have been drawn home to Wigan Athletic in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

The Millers were first out of the hat at this morning’s draw in Vietnam, with Paul Warne’s side set to face the Latics who were also last season promoted back to The Championship.

Matches are scheduled to take place on the week commencing 13 August.

EFL Clubs have voted to remove extra-time from every round, apart from the Final, from the start of the 2018/19 season, with matches tied at 90 minutes going straight to a penalty shoot-out. The 2019 Final will feature extra time and penalties if required.

The format of penalties will revert to the traditional format, as opposed to the recently trialled ABBA formula, which will no longer feature in EFL competitions. VAR will again be utilised in the competition and can be incorporated for all games that are played at Premier League stadiums, while this season’s Final will take place on Sunday 24 February 2019 with the winners guaranteed a place in the Europa League in the following campaign.
