Brentford will take on Norwich City in the third round of the Carabao Cup, it has been announced.

The Bees dispatched Queens Park Rangers 4-1 at Loftus Road on Tuesday (August 22), and will now host their fellow Sky Bet Championship rivals at Griffin Park in the week commencing September 18.

Brentford have gone further in the competition than they have in the previous two seasons, losing to Exeter City last time out 1-0 and were put to the sword by Oxford United in a 4-0 defeat.

This is the first time the Bees have reached the third round since 2010.
