West Ham’s Carabao Cup date set


David Moyes’ Hammers will travel to EFL League One side for West Ham United’s Carabao Cup third-round tie at Lincoln City on Wednesday 27 September, with kick-off at the LNER Stadium at 7.45pm.

West Ham enter the competition at this stage, along with the seven other English clubs competing in Europe this season.

The Imps, meanwhile, booked their place in the competition’s last-32 with a penalty shootout victory over Premier League Sheffield United, following a 0-0 draw at Bramall Lane.

Managed by former Republic of Ireland winger Mark Kennedy, Lincoln reached the fourth round last season before being defeated by Southampton.

West Ham last visited Sincil Bank in competitive action back in November 1982, when John Lyall’s men drew 1-1, also in a League Cup third round fixture.

Ticket details for this tie will be confirmed in due course and announced on the club’s official channels.
