Earlier this morning Vietnam played host to the EFL Cup first round draw and Lee Johnson’s Bristol City were given a very familiar opponent.

For the second straight season, we face Plymouth Argyle with the game taking place at Ashton Gate.

The actual date of the tie will be announced in due course following discussions between both clubs, but it is set for the week beginning August 13th.

In 2017/18 we took a 5-0 victory over Derek Adams side to book our place in the second round draw and goalscorers on that day were Nathan Baker, Jens Hegeler, Korey Smith, Freddie Hinds and Jamie Paterson.

Given what that victory meant as we ran to the semi-finals for the first time since 1989, beating the likes of Watford, Stoke City, Crystal Palace and Manchester United before losing out to Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, the draw has again been seen as a great omen for us as another Cup campaign like that would certainly be welcome.
