Cheltenham tie picked for TV coverage

Cheltenham Town's LCI Rail Stadium

West Ham United's Carabao Cup second round tie against Cheltenham Town has been selected for live broadcast by Sky Sports.

The Hammers will travel to the LCI Stadium for a 7.45pm kick-off on Wednesday 23 August.

West Ham take on the Robins at the same stage of the competition for the second time in five seasons, after a Boleyn Ground meeting between the clubs in August 2013.

Goals from Ricardo Vaz Te and Ravel Morrison were enough to see off the League 2 side on that occasion, who registered through Matt Richards from the penalty spot.

Gary Johnson's team defeated Oxford United 4-3 in the first round of this season's Carabao Cup, and have three points from their opening two league games.

Ticket information for Hammers fans will be announced shortly.
