Carabao Cup
The Carabao Cup Round One draw will take place live on Sky Sports at 3:40pm this afternoon. Round One will see teams drawn in Northern and Southern sections, with matches scheduled to take place week commencing 9th August. Oxford United are Ball 24

Papa John’s Trophy
The draw for the Papa John’s Trophy group stages will take place on Sky Sports at 4:30pm today. United are in Group H along with Cambridge United and Stevenage and will be joined by an under 21 side from either Arsenal, Aston Villa, Brighton, Chelsea, Crystal Palace, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur or West Ham United

All fixtures are subject to change

The draft fixture list has been formatted to enable Derby County and Wycombe Wanderers’ divisional places to be interchangeable, ahead of the start of the season and this will also apply to the group stage draw of the Papa John’s Trophy. This is because there remains a possibility that as part of any appeal, the League Arbitration Panel could impose a sporting sanction to take effect in 2020/21 that would potentially impact the final league placings. Derby County disputes that this is a possibility under the EFL Regulations. The adoption of such an approach is necessary to enable the independent judicial process to run in full, without delaying the fixture publication.
