Carabao Cup second round draw on Thursday

Players who get as many as three yellow cards in the Carabao Cup were hitherto made to miss three matches, but the new rules now stipulate that it would only affect the FA cup and not the league.

And ahead of the cup campaign kicking-off, clubs have voted to introduce a number of key rules changes to this season's competition.

With no extra-time in the competition, any match that ends in a draw after 90 minutes goes straight to penalties and there were nine shootouts on Tuesday alone.

Furthermore, the format of penalties has also changed - with the ABBA trial utilised last season scrapped with a return to the traditional ABAB taking format now in place.

The round two fixtures will be played in the week commencing Monday, 27 August, with the third round being played in the week commencing Monday, 24 September.

But the peso has continued to drop and inflation has also been rampant, triggering a more desperate response from the government. The run on the peso prompted Argentina to turn to the International Monetary Fund for the $50bn credit line earlier this year.

The quartet of Yorkshire sides progressed through the first round of the competition courtesy of victories over Bolton, Sheffield United, Scunthorpe and Wiga. - and they could now be rewarded with a glamour tie.

The draw for the second round of the Carabao Cup will take place at the Stadium of Light on Thursday.

Former Ipswich boss Mick McCarthy and Chris Waddle will conduct the draw ahead of their punditry duties for the game, with presenter David Prutton overseeing proceedings.

There will be no seeding in the second round draw, meaning that Newcastle could be handed a tie against one of their Premier League rivals.
