An all-Yorkshire game pits Leeds United against Barnsley in the second round of the 2022/23 Carabao Cup.

Meanwhile, Barnsley have made a rocky start to the 2022/23 season - they’ve collected two wins and three defeats so far. Last time out, they were taken apart at home by a physical Wycombe Wanderers outfit, losing 3-0.

Barnsley had to beat Chris Wilder’s Middlesbrough to get to the second round - an impressive feat, considering they’re a league below Boro.

Leeds, being a Premier League team, automatically qualified for the second round of the League Cup.

When will the game kick off?

Barring any postponements or cancellations, the game between Leeds and Barnsley is set to kick off at 7:45pm on Wednesday, August 24.

What channel is it on?

Leeds v Barnsley has not been selected by Sky Sports for live TV coverage - instead, they elected to broadcast Bolton Wanderers v Aston Villa and Tranmere Rovers v Newcastle United.

However, this doesn’t mean you can’t watch the game from the comfort of your own home. You’ll be able to watch the game live using either of the two teams’ iFollow services.

Furthermore, you’ll be able to catch radio coverage of the game on BBC Radio Leeds.
