Championship club to visit ME7 in second round.
Gillingham will play Coventry City at MEMS Priestfield Stadium in the second round of the Carabao Cup, with the winner set to take on either Wolves or Stoke away in round three.
Steve Evans’ men advanced to the next stage following a 1-0 win over Southend on Saturday, and will now take on the Sky Blues who were promoted to the Championship last season. They beat MK Dons at stadium:mk 1-0 at the weekend.
The draw was made on Sky Sports following the conclusion of Brentford’s win over Wycombe on penalties, with former Liverpool defender Phil Babb taking charge of proceedings. Both the second and third round draws were made, so the Gills already know who they might play if they can get past Mark Robins' team.
