The two sides meet tonight at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium with a place in the third round of the EFL Cup on the line and having both reached this point in the competition via a penalty shoot-out.

Given his side’s busy schedule in recent weeks, Warburton will undoubtedly be keen to avoid the game going that far tonight and has named a relatively strong side.
