The draw for the second round of the League Cup has resulted in Forfar travelling to Dens Park to take on the Dees twice in one week.

The Loons are already set to face Dundee Football Club at Dens in the next Round of the Ramsden Cup on Tuesday, August 20.

But yesterday’s draw has resulted in both teams facing each other again exactly one week later, on Tuesday, August 27.

The Forfar squad will once again head down the A90 to tackle John Brown’s Dundee for the second week running.

Dick Campbell and his team will go into ‘battle’ for a last sixteen place in the League Cup.

The two teams previously met in a pre-season friendly at Station Park when a goal from Carlo Monti proved to be the difference, with Dundee notching up a 1-0 win.

Meanwhile, it has been announced that Forfar Athletic’s first home league fixture of the season with Rangers will be shown live on Sky Sports.

The match will be played at Station Park on Sunday, September 22 with a 12.45 p.m. kick off.
