Stevenage may not have much of a derby game in the league this season but they have been rewarded with one in the first round of the League Cup - with Luton Town drawn out as the visitors to the Lamex Stadium.

The pair last played each other in 2018 and both clubs will hope fans are given the green light to return to stadia.

The match will be a first too as the sides have never met in either the FA Cup or League Cup before.

Stevenage were beaten on penalties in last year's competition, going down 3-1 to Portsmouth after a 3-3 draw over the 90 minutes.
