Norwich City will travel to Crawley Town in the Second Round of the Carabao Cup after the draw was completed on Tuesday evening.

You may remember that Crawley came to Carrow Road at the same stage of the same competition back in 2014, when City eventually came out winners by a 3-1 margin.

An opener from Cameron Jerome and then two more from Josh Murphy were enough to see a City side that also contained Jamar Loza and Kyle McFadden ease past Crawley, back then.

The Carabao Cup always gives the chance for a few players on the fringes of the squad to get some game time and perhaps press their case for a more regular role.

Certainly, Max Aarons made his debut for the Canaries in the competition against Stevenage and then scored the third goal in a 1-3 win over Cardiff in the next round, last season.

It’s fair to say that Max has never looked back from there.

One team that Norwich won’t have the chance of facing, should they get past Crawley Town though, is Ipswich.

Our old mates were comprehensively beaten 3-1 at Kenilworth Road by Luton Town.

You can’t go to places like Luton and try and play attacking, expansive football… 🙂


I pinched that line from @JamesBigg on Twitter because it’s just so good. Thank you, James.
