Stags to face Accrington Stanley in Carabao Cup first round

15 June 2018

Mansfield Town will face Accrington Stanley at One Call Stadium in the Carabao Cup first round, during the week commencing Monday 13 August.

Accrington Stanley were crowned champions of Sky Bet League Two last season, but will return to One Call Stadium in early August.

Stags were included as ball number 19 in the northern section of the draw, which took place at 10.45am on Friday morning in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

The competition has seen changes ahead of this season's instalment of the tournament, with extra-time to be removed from every round apart from the final, meaning matches that are tied at 90 minutes will go straight to penalties.

The format of penalties will also 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.

Ticket details for the match will be announced closer to the date of the fixture.
