There was news of a trip to Brentford in the third round of the Carabao Cup to digest with breakfast for Norwich City fans this morning.

Daniel Farke’s side will travel to Griffin Park in the week commencing Monday, September 18, which means the tie is likely to be played on the evening of Tuesday, September 19 – although that is yet to be confirmed.

The strange 4.15am timing of the draw was the main discussion point for fans across the country though, with the EFL moving to explain the reasons behind the draw being held in China ahead of the draw.
