Cardiff Up In Carabao Cup

Last updated : 16 June 2017 By Jim Bonner

Portsmouth will travel to the Welsh capital to play Cardiff City in the first round of the upcoming season's League Cup, now known as the Carabao Cup.

It's going to be a difficult game and, let's be honest, it's not the most interesting tie in the world, is it? Especially seeing as Pompey take on the Bluebirds at Cardiff City Stadium in a friendly at the end of July.

It might even be the case that the friendly is cancelled because of the outcome of this draw. Speaking of cancelled, Pompey's friendlies at Bognor and Sutton have been called off. A Potsmouth XI side will take on Newport I.O.W on Tuesday, July 18th with a 7pm kick-off.

The Carabao Cup tie with Cardiff will almost certainly be played on Tuesday, August 8th with a 7:45pm kick-off.
