Carabao Cup Player of the Round: Vote now!

6 September 2022

Vote for your Carabao Cup Player of the Round for Round Two now.

There were some standout performances in Round Two of the Carabao Cup, but whose performance was the best?

Watch the below shortlist and CLICK HERE to cast your vote. 

You can also have the chance to win a replica Puma Carabao Cup football and a case of Carabao.

The players to choose from are:

Darragh Burns (MK Dons)

The 20-year-old Irish winger showed why MK Dons bought him from St Patrick's this summer by inspiring his new side to a 2-0 win at Championship Watford in Round Two. His astute low return pass was perfect for Matthew Dennis to tap in for the opener before he sealed the Dons’ passage, drilling home a low shot from 20 yards.

Fisayo Dele-Bashiru (Sheffield Wednesday)

Wednesday put on a long-range shooting class against Rochdale in Round Two with a hat-trick of stunning strikes from outside the area. Dele-Bashiru played a pivotal part in all three. A simple pass for the opener, a majestic curler into the top corner to make it 2-0, then winning back possession to set up the Owls’ third goal.

Tom Nichols (Crawley Town)

Against Premier League opposition, League Two players can often look hurried and flustered. Not Nichols, who played at pace, but with a calmness that personified Crawley’s 2-0 win over Fulham. His assured finish put Crawley in front before he set up his side’s clincher with equal presence of mind and panache.

Jordan Wright (Lincoln City)

Not content with denying Billy Waters several times and then John Rooney in the top corner on the stroke of half-time, Lincoln goalkeeper Wright saved three spot-kicks in the shootout – two low down before brilliantly throwing up his left hand to keep out Robbie Gotts’ effort and begin the Lincoln celebrations after making Round Three. 

Voting will close at 23:59 on Friday 9 September.
