The draw is looming

It’s finally time for the draw after Brentford’s first-round tie against Wycombe Wanderers went to a penalty shootout.

The Bees are the final team to book their place in Round Two, but were made to sweat by the 10-man Chairboys in the first competitive game at their new stadium.

Brentford took a first-half lead thanks to Ethan Pinnock’s goals but Wycombe fought back after the break through Daryl Horgan despite losing Dominic Gape to a red card.

Marcus Forss hit the winning penalty in the shootout, which ended 4-2.
