Newcastle United official announcement:

Newcastle United Under-23s have been handed a home draw against Derby County in the quarter-finals of the Premier League Cup.

Ben Dawson’s side sealed their spot in the last eight courtesy of a 2-1 victory against Reading, with United’s Jamie Sterry and Tom Allan both finding the target in their last 16 tie at Woking’s Kingfield Stadium.
