Norwich City will face lower league opposition in the second round of the Capital One Cup, after being drawn at home against Crawley Town.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The Canaries were seeded for the draw, along with other lower Premier League teams and higher Championship teams.

It will be the first time the two clubs have met in a competitive fixture, unsurprisingly given Crawley’s rise from non-league in the past decade.

The League One side, who are managed by former Aston Villa boss John Gregory, face the Canaries after beating Ipswich Town in the first round.

Izale McLeod’s goal sealed the win against the Tractor Boys in extra time for Crawley on Tuesday night, following on from a 1-0 win at Barnsley on the opening day of the league season.

Second round games are scheduled to be played on Tuesday, August 26 or Wednesday, August 27.

  • Just thinking back to the pre-season tour - can anyone assure me this really is Crawley we are playing, or is it just a team from the Crawley area?

  • Anyone recall the days when a cup run really mattered? Transfers fell through if a player was cup tied. Key players picked up questionable injuries and missed league matches ahead of crucial ties. And each round you wanted a home game against lower league opponents. As for league position, it was of passing interest while you dreamed of cup glory. Good days. Players catching the bus to matches, their leather boots coated in dubbin and with nailed in studs. Ovalteenies, Radio Luxemburg, Hancock, men in gaberdeen raincoats stood on street corners with brown paper parcels tied up in string. In those days, cup runs mattered.

  • I suppose the seeding mechanism is there to ensure that the competition sets off with a number of teams that ends up as 2 in the final? Imagine starting with, say, 36 teams. 18 - 9 - 4.5 - 2.25. Trophy won by 1.125 teams!! Such fun, in a fractional sort of way.

  • Odds can be very uneven at times, BOF. A conspiracy theory is more fun though.

  • Anyone remember the year we got drawn against Wrexham ? Oh the mirth , " Wrexham or Wroxham ? quoth the EEN . And as usual here , pride came before a fall , the opposition went for it and duly won . I'd rather have drawn MUtd , frankly , I feel a terrible sense of doom coming on . And what are the chances of a club drawing the neighbours from Seely Suffolk in one round , then us in the next ? Odd . Very Odd . Funny old Game , football .

  • What a Hoot - I don't think we have to worry about Ipswich winning anything or catching up with us in terms of years in the Premiership. Why worry about trophies won years before most of us were born? Unless you want them to feel inferior to Huddersfield, Preston and Clapham Rovers

  • It is just another banana skin waiting to be stepped on! Doesn't matter who we are playing, we need to step up our game greatly, pass the ball quicker, more accurately and with the aim of getting it into the box either from the wings or through the middle. We also need to show more commitment and passion and our defence must be more focussed and resilient. Adams for his part must, simply must, avoid the cardinal mistake he made at Wolves on Sunday, playing individuals out of position where they are not effective. And finally we must get away from the losing mentality that has scarred the players who remain from last season (the majority). If we go into the Crawley game without all these attributes in place we may well get turned over. Remember Luton? And as a more recent warning - my home town (Div2) club Northampton managed to score three goals against Wolves and beat them at Molineux!

  • Cardiff had to play in Round 1 because they finished below us and Fulham. If Ipswich had beaten Crawley we would not have been drawn against them as they would have been seeded too. Hope that clears up a couple of questions from earlier posters

  • I don`t quite understand the "seeding" system. Cardiff were in R1 even though they were a relegated Prem team, like we are. Is it because their tenure was but for one fleeting season? Anybody know?

  • We wouldn't have played Ipswich had they beaten Crawley, because of the seedings. I detest that. There should be no seedings. If Scunthorpe are at home to Gillingham and Newcastle home to Man Utd, then so be it. The first focus of the Football League cup seems to be to eliminate the Football League clubs!

  • DubaiCanary@ It would be a shame for Ipswich to take the only trophy we have won to put with their Football League (Pre Premiership) trophy, FA Cup trophy and (oh yes) the European trophy UEFA Cup. It would be nice for us to have just one of those to our name. Never mind - dream on , perhaps one day under NA!!!

  • Sadly Norwich are going nowhere this season. You have to score to win games and you just don't seem to have that capability. COYS!

  • Cornwall you are spot on. Just about everyone in the game knows Norwich are not ( of late anyway) interested in cup games. We just don't turn up preferring the league games........like Wolves on Sunday. PS Dubai should bring out a book of his jokes. That's 2 this week already!

  • From what I can tell, Crawley are like the Wimbledon of old and will give us a very Hard game to say the least. If we play our reserves, then I fear we will not make the next round. Likewise, if the players fail to turn up on the night ditto but do we want to progress in this competition this season, over to you Neil. At least let us know before we waste our money on tickets though.

  • I met a genie today who granted me one wish. “I want to live forever,” I said. “Sorry,” said the fairy, “I’m not allowed to grant wishes like that.” “Fine,” I said, “I want to die when 1p5wich win the Capital One Cup.” “You crafty ****!” said the genie.
