Pompey To Visit Stevenage In Carabao Cup

Blues on the road in first round

18 August 2020

Pompey have been drawn away to League Two side Stevenage in the first round of the Carabao Cup.

The tie – which will likely be played behind closed doors – is scheduled to take place at Broadhall Way on the weekend of September 5/6, although teams can mutually agree to a change of date.

Former Blues skipper Paul Merson conducted the draw, which was shown live on Sky Sports News.

It looked like Stevenage would not be taking place in this season's competition after finishing bottom of the fourth tier when the season was halted because of Covid-19.

But Alex Revell's outfit were granted a reprieve when a points deduction saw Macclesfield relegated to the National League instead.

The first ever competitive meeting between the sides came at this stage of the competition back in August 2010.

Pompey won 2-1 that evening, with Nadir Ciftci and Michael Brown scoring the goals for Steve Cotterill's visitors.

The Blues reached the third round of last season's Carabao Cup, while Stevenage fell at the first hurdle.
