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.
