Southampton vs Brentford - 7.45pm kick-off 2:01 Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Birmingham City and Brentford Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship match between Birmingham City and Brentford

Goalkeeper Fraser Forster could make his first Southampton appearance in more than 16 months during Wednesday's Carabao Cup clash with Brentford.

Former England keeper Forster, who spent last season on loan at Celtic and was a substitute for Saturday's Premier League loss at Crystal Palace, has been given another opportunity to impress at St Mary's by Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Saints manager Hasenhuttl plans to pick a strong line-up for the second-round tie against last season's Sky Bet Championship play-off finalists. Midfielder Stuart Armstrong remains unavailable due to a thigh injury.

Brentford will assess midfielder Mathias Jensen ahead of the trip. The Dane hobbled off in the early stages of Saturday's 1-0 loss at Birmingham with an apparent ankle problem.

Bees goalkeeper David Raya has returned to training following a minor issue which kept him out the first-round win over Wycombe and the defeat at St Andrew's.

Winger Said Benrahma, who like Raya has been linked with a move away from the club, has been struggling with a lack of fitness and an ankle problem and looks unlikely to feature.

How to follow and watch highlights: Follow the action with our dedicated Carabao Cup blog. Free match highlights will be published on the Sky Sports website, app and YouTube channel later that evening.

Stat of the match: Southampton have lost just one of their last 10 meetings with Brentford in all competitions (W5 D4), though this is the first time they've faced each other since April 2011.

UEFA's third-tier tournament starts next season, with the Carabao Cup winners to enter at the play-off stage. Matches will be played on Thursdays.

If the Carabao Cup winners qualify for Europe through their Premier League position instead, then the sixth-placed team in the Premier League - or seventh place if the FA Cup is also won by a top-six team - will go into the UECL play-offs.

There will still be at four English teams in the Champions League and two in the Europa League.

Clubs that lose in the play-off round of the Europa League will drop into the Europa Conference League group stage, while clubs who finish third in their Europa League group would also see their European adventure extended; they would drop to the UECL in the knockout stage.
