They join the others to have been selected, the league ones are Luton Town v Middlesbrough, Salford City v Stevenage, Nottingham Forest v West Brom, Bristol City v Leeds United and Huddersfield Town v Derby County, along with the Carabao Cup ones Portsmouth v Birmingham City and Salford City v Leeds United.
The last lot of games chosen left fans rather miffed off, mainly due to Leeds and Salford, who later that day drew each other in the League Cup and again the duo got picked.
Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony said: “Hey @EFL that’s a little too obvious putting Salford on TV straight off the bat. Could have waited till 2nd or 3rd round of fixtures ??”
Football fans have since given their reaction to the tv selections with the majority surprised – find out why and what they had to say on the next page.
