Crawley Town will welcome Premier League side Norwich City to The People’s Pension Stadium in round two of the Carabao Cup following tonight (Tuesday)’s draw.

The draw was conducted immediately after the evening’s first round games.

Second round ties of the 2019/20 Carabao Cup are scheduled to take place on the week commencing August 26.

Gabriele Cioffi’s side advanced to the second round of the tournament for the first time in five years after a 3-2 win at Walsall.

The Red Devils last met the Canaries at the same stage of this competition back in 2014. Norwich ran out 3-1 victors at Carrow Road on that occasion after Cameron Jerome and Josh Murphy (two) cancelled out a Carlos Cuellar own goal.

Manchester City are the current holders of the competition after defeating Chelsea 4-3 on penalties after a goalless 120 minutes.

Orient were promoted last season but siffered tragedy in the summer when manager Justin Edinburgh died aged just 49.

Cioffi said: “We are so sorry for what happened. The club was shocked. It’s life, it’s not football. On the human side we are very sorry but the show must go on.

“I am Christian, I am very sensitive to this stuff and my thoughts are with the staff and family because I can empathise when something like that happens.

“We go as a team to Leyton Orient to try and perform well and the points will be a consequence.”

Cioffi is hoping for a big crowd to travel the relatively short distance to Orient. He said: “The support the crowd gave us today [Crewe] was great. I think in this way if everyone is going in the right direction without great expectatio,n it will be a good season.”
