Crawley Town Football Club have been drawn at home to League One Bristol Rovers in the first round of this season’s Carabao Cup. First-round fixtures are due to take place on the week commencing August 8th.
The fixture will become Crawley’s third of the campaign, with a trip to Carlisle and a home time against Leyton Orient coming beforehand.
The Reds exited the competition in the first round last season, having lost 11-10 to Steve Evans’ Gillingham. Crawley embarked on a historic Carabao Cup campaign in the 2019/20 season, beating a Premier League side for the first time in the club’s history with a 1-0 victory against Norwich. The Red Devils were eventually knocked out in the fourth round by Colchester United.
Ticket information and an exact date for this fixture will be confirmed in due course.
