NEWPORT County AFC have discovered who they will play in the first round of this season's Carabao Cup.

The Exiles will face off against Championship side Luton Town in the League Cup tie.

The Hatters have not lost to County in the last five meetings between the sides.

The two teams have played each other 49 times down the years, with Luton having won nearly half of those (24).

There have been 13 draws between the teams, with County have only won 12 times against the Hatters.

Exiles fans will be hoping their side does as well as the Newport side of 1928 fared - running out comprehensive winners in the old Third Division with a final score of 7-2.

Luton had a strong season last time out, finishing sixth in the Championship and going on to lose out in the playoffs to Huddersfield Town by a single goal.

They will go into the game as favourites, but as we have seen in previous years, County can beat anyone on their day.

Newport County AFC will be the away side in the first round tie.

The first round matches of the Carabao Cup will this season take place on the week commencing August 10.
