Leeds United stand between Norwich City and a place in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup.

The Canaries' reward for their superb 2-0 win at Premier League Everton on Tuesday night is another away game in the fourth round.

They will travel to Elland Road in the week commencing October 24 after landing their fellow Championship side in tonight's draw for the last 16.

Alex Neil's troops have already knocked out Coventry City and Everton to reach this stage of the competition while Garry Monk's Whites have seen off Blackburn Rovers, Luton Town and Fleetwood Town, on penalties, to move within one victory of the quarters.

City's last trip to Leeds was a victorious one with goals from Jonny Howson and Graham Dorrans securing a vital 2-0 win in April 2015. The clubs are yet to meet in the league this season with their first encounter set to take place at Carrow Road on Saturday November 5.
