Details of the First Round draw
Southend United will face Newport County in the first round of the Carabao Cup.
The game will take place in the week commencing 7th August 2017 following the opening weekend of the 2017/18 season.
Blues were drawn out to play the game away, however the EFL have granted Newport permission to reverse the tie due to pitch refurbishments at Rodney Parade, so this game will now be played at Roots Hall.
Further details on the date of the fixture and ticket details will be announced in due course.
