Carabao Cup

Capital One Cup Round 1 TV games announced

18 June 2014

The Capital One Cup Round 1 fixtures to be shown live on Sky Sports have been announced

On Monday 11th August, the 2014/15 competition will get under way at Brunton Park where Carlisle United host Derby County. 

The television cameras will then capture the action between Coventry City and Cardiff City, on Wednesday 13th.

Both matches are set to kick-off at 7:45pm. 

For Carlisle, it will be the second successive season in which they have hosted Sky Bet Championship opposition in Round 1. Twelve months ago they overcame Blackburn Rovers 4-3 on penalties following a 3-3 extra-time draw, before losing to Leicester City in Round 2.

Derby were also dumped out of last season's competition by the Foxes, losing 2-1 at the King Power Stadium in Round 3. 

Coventry have been drawn at home in Round 1 for the first time in five seasons, during which time they've exited the Cup in their first match four times. In 2012/13 they made it to the Round 3. 

They'll face a Cardiff team who last year entered the Capital One Cup in Round 2 when they beat Accrington Stanley. Their best-ever finish came in 2011/12, losing the Final on penalties to Liverpool.
