Carabao Cup

Article posted:

The Ammies will head up the road to Bolton Wanderers in Round One of the Carabao Cup!

Today’s draw paired Salford with our near-neighbours at their ground, the University of Bolton Stadium. Supporters missed out on our last visit to Bolton in the behind-closed-doors 2020-21 season, when The Trotters won 2-0.

It continues our run of always begin drawn against higher league opposition in the competition, with our only win in the Cup coming against a League One side when we knocked out Rotherham United on penalties in 2020.

Ties are due to be played in the week commencing 8th August, but can be moved to the week before if clubs mutually agree. We will confirm the date once the fixture has been arranged.

The opening few games of the season are as follows, after our Sky Bet League Two fixtures were released this morning:

Saturday 30th July – Mansfield Town (H)
Saturday 6th August – Swindon Town (A)
Tuesday 9th August (TBC) – Bolton Wanderers (A, Carabao Cup R1)
Saturday 13th August – Crewe Alexandra (H)
Tuesday 16th August – Newport County (A)
