Match preview

Will Stoke City avoid being on the wrong end of a Carabao Cup shock?

So far, the Potters have made a mixed start to the Championship season, losing 2-0 to Millwall before Saturday’s 2-0 victory over Blackpool.

Harry Clarke and Jacob Brown on target in the latter.

In League Cup terms, Stoke won this trophy in 1972 and were quarter-finalists just two years ago, beaten by Tottenham.

They haven’t been beaten in the first round since 2007, beaten by Rochdale on penalties back then, a statistic they very much hope remains true following this one.

Morecambe meanwhile kicked off their League One campaign with a goalless draw against Shrewsbury before being hammered 3-0 at Peterborough.

The Shrimps have got through the League Cup first round in each of the last three seasons, but face a tough task if they’re to extend that record.

Will Stoke be too strong at Mazuma Stadium?
