Albion drawn away at Forest Green in Football League Cup

Posted On 10 Aug 2022 at 10:14 pm

Brighton and Hove Albion will travel to the New Lawn to take on Forest Green Rovers in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

Albion are the second highest club in the competition at this stage based on placings last season.

Forest Green beat Leyton Orient 2-0 in the first round yesterday (Tuesday 9 August).

The second round tie is due to be played in just under a fortnight on Tuesday 23 August.

The two clubs have met before in the Football League Trophy back in 2003 at Withdean Stadium.

It was a game in which 16-year-old Jake Robinson scored his first Albion goal.

Now aged 35, Robinson scored for Worthing last Saturday.

Rovers, based in Gloucestershire, appear keen to put the green into Forest Green.

They claim to be the world’s first carbon-neutral football club.

Albion’s next Premier League opponents, Newcastle United, travel to Tranmere Rovers for their second round tie while Everton will play at Fleetwood and Crawley Town host Fulham.
