West Ham United's Carabao Cup second round opponents confirmed

West Ham United will travel to Cheltenham Town in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

The Hammers have been drawn against the League 2 side for the second time in five seasons and the tie will be played at Whaddon Road in the week commencing 21 August.

West Ham faced Cheltenham at the Boleyn Ground at the same stage of this competition in August 2013, triumphing 2-1 thanks to goals from Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison.

That game saw Adrian make his first appearance in claret and blue and is the only previous meeting of the sides.

Thursday's draw originally pitted the Hammers at home, but as agreed by the EFL Board earlier this year and confirmed on Monday, a West Ham United home draw would be reversed immediately due to London Stadium welcoming the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships for a once-in-a-generation occasion.

The Hammers will therefore travel to Gloucestershire for the tie and ticketing details will be announced in due course.
