Forest Carabao Cup date confirmed

Wolves’ Carabao Cup second round tie with Nottingham Forest will take place on Tuesday 24th August at 8pm.

A delay in announcing the fixture date was due to Wolves pushing for a fixture later in the week, due to Bruno Lage’s side competing in the Premier League just over 48 hours previously.

Wolves face Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon in Molineux’s first top-flight fixture of the 2021/22 season, and now the squad will be back in action at the City Ground two days later.

Appeals to play the fixture on Wednesday 25th were rejected due to a clash with the T20 contest between Notts Outlaws and Hampshire Hawks taking place at nearby Trent Bridge, with further alternatives also dismissed by the EFL.

The game will be the first time Wolves have faced Forest on the road since the 2017/18 season, where the old gold secured a 2-1 win on their way to taking the second tier league title.

Ticket information for the second round tie at the City Ground will follow shortly.
