West Ham discover Carabao Cup third round opponents

The Carabao Cup trophy

West Ham United have been drawn at home against Macclesfield Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Manuel Pellegrini's side will host the League Two Silkmen in the week commencing 24 September.

Thursday evening's draw handed the Hammers a tie against the lowest-ranked side left in this year's Carabao Cup.

The Hammers booked their place in the third round with a come-from-behind 3-1 victory at AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening.

Issa Diop, Angelo Ogbonna and Chicharito were on target to turn the game around after Joe Pigott headed the League One side into an early lead.

Macclesfield, meanwhile, have seen off Bradford City and Walsall to reach the last 32 of this competition.

Full fixture and ticketing information will follow in due course.
