Cobblers beat Cardiff City in the first round while the Robins defeated Exeter City.

Should the Cobblers progress at Ashton Gate, and should potential third-round opponents Aston Villa defeat Burton Albion, it could make for a congested schedule with Villa due to play Sheffield United in the Premier League on Monday, September 21st, the same week as the third round of the EFL Cup.
