Newcastle found out that they will play Notts Forest in the 2nd round of the League cup the other day and the fixture has now been confirmed.

We will play the Carabao Cup tie on Wednesday 23rd August with a 7:45pm kick off.

Forest got to this stage by beating Shrewsbury whilst we got a bye that the non-European entrants of the premier league get with those who have qualified for Europe getting a bye to the 3rd round.

As usual with these cup games, ticket prices are cheap as long as you buy in advance of game day with adult tickets a tenner and £5 for everyone else.

Tickets for the lower bowl of St James’ Park will be the first batch on sale and if demand outgrows it then level 7 will surely have to be opened but if people do leave purchasing until the last minute then the prices will double to £20 for adults and £10 for others.
