Crawley Town Football Club will host Gillingham in the opening round of the Carabao Cup, which will take place on the week commencing August 9, with an exact date still to be confirmed.
The Reds lost out to Championship side Millwall in the first round last season, as Sam Ashford’s goal was not enough to take us through in a 1-3 defeat.
In the 2019/20 season, Crawley advanced to the fourth round after spectacularly knocking both Norwich City and Stoke City out of the competition in rounds two and three. We opened the campaign with a first-round away victory against Walsall and finished with a fourth-round home defeat to Colchester United in a brilliant campaign.
Information regarding a date and ticket sales will be announced in due course.
