Carabao Cup tie selected for live coverage...

YEOVIL Town’s Carabao Cup tie against Aston Villa on Tuesday 14th August (7.45pm) at Huish Park will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The Round One clash has been selected for television coverage in what will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides.

Steve Bruce’s Championship outfit will head to Somerset after narrowly missing out on promotion back to the Premier League last season having suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat to Fulham in the play-off final at Wembley in May.

For Darren Way’s side, it will mark the second season in succession where the Glovers have faced second tier opposition in Round One, after facing Wolves at the same stage in 2017/18.

Ticket prices will be confirmed in due course.
