QPR drawn against Brentford in Carabao Cup

QPR will face Brentford in the second round the Carabao Cup.

Following the second round draw on Thursday evening the R’s have been paired against local rivals Brentford at Loftus Road.

It follows some initial confusion in the draw live on Sky Sports News. Brentford were pulled out of the hat first before a second draw was undertaken to determine the home side. The R's were announced as the away team despite the venue draw showing them as having home advantage.

After that confusion was resolved it was confirmed that QPR were indeed at home to Brentford in the next round. 

The R’s booked their place in the next round following Tuesday’s 1-0 win against Northampton Town.

Yeni Ngbakoto’s 36th minute goal was enough to seal victory against the League One side.

Second round ties are scheduled for the week commencing 21st August. Full details and ticket information will be confirmed shortly.
