Norwich City have been drawn away to League One side Wycombe Wanderers in the third round of the EFL Cup.

The Canaries knocked out Premier League newcomers Cardiff City in the second round as a brace from Dennis Srbeny and a goal from youngster Max Aarons secured a 3-1 win.

Wycombe beat Forest Green Rovers on penalties to reach this stage.

The tie at Adams Park will be played in the week commencing September 24.

Norwich won the last meeting between the sides in January 2010 when Korey Smith's strike saw them run out 1-0 winners in League One.

Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur's home tie against Watford could be played at Stadium MK.

Spurs are still waiting to move into their new stadium and Wembley isn't available during the week of the third round.

As a result, Tottenham have applied to the EFL board for special dispensation to play the game in Milton Keynes.

The board will consider the request at its next meeting on Thursday 6 September before making a final decision.

Stadium MK is almost 50 miles away from Wembley.

"We appreciate that Stadium MK may not be an ideal destination for every fan to get to on a weekday evening, however the club felt it would not be beneficial to request a reverse of the fixture as it would have resulted in no more than a 10% allocation of tickets for our supporters at the venue of our opponents," a Tottenham spokesperson said.

"We are extremely conscious of having to ask our supporters to attend home matches at more than one venue and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."
