The one remaining Round Two fixture of this season’s Carabao Cup between Barnsley and Derby County is to be moved to Tuesday 12th September.
The switch requires the following Sky Bet Championship matches originally scheduled for that date to be re-arranged for a future date.
- Derby County v Ipswich Town
- Reading v Barnsley
The EFL would like to apologise to the clubs and the supporters of the teams involved for any inconvenience caused.
However, the need to move the tie forward a week is required due to limited flexibility in the fixture schedule alongside the fact that the winners of the Round Two tie have been drawn against Tottenham Hotspur, who have the added complication of being involved in four competitions, including the Group Stages of the Champions League.
The Round Three tie between Spurs and the winner of this Round Two clash will be played one week later, on Tuesday 19th September, with an 8pm kick-off.
