EFL Cup First Round Draw - 16/6/17

EFL Cup First Round Draw - 16/6/17

The draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup took place earlier this evening.

Drawn live on the interweb from Bangkok where the new sponsors, Carabao, are based, it's fair to say it wasn't a 'classic' or clean draw.

The graphics from the draw showed Charlton Athletic facing Exeter City away from home and Cheltenham Town at The Valley while Wimbledon were also incorrectly shown as being at home to Swindon. They were in fact drawn at home to Brentford, with Swindon being away to Norwich.

The problems didn't end there though, newly promoted Forest Green were shown as being away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, when in fact they are at home to Yeovil Town.

Sound problems also afflicted the draw from Thailand.

The EFL quickly released a statement this afternoon.

'The EFL would like to apologise for a number of third party technical issues that affected coverage of this afternoon`s Carabao Cup Round One draw in Bangkok. There were inaccuracies as a result of human error in the live graphics output, which resulted in confusion and incorrect ties being displayed on screen. In addition, some users did experience difficulties in accessing the stream on certain external platforms. Both issues are currently under investigation.'

Adding.

'The EFL can confirm that the draw was not compromised in any way and all clubs have received confirmation of their Round One ties.'

So, the draw itself.
