Salford vs Leeds LIVE: Updates from Carabao Cup clash with second round draw to follow | Football | Sport
Championship side Leeds travel to League Two Salford for the first time in their history.
The Carabao Cup second round draw will follow the clash at Moor Lane.
Former Manchester United stars – and class of 92 players – are part owners at Salford.
Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt are part owners, with businessman Peter Lim having a 40 per cent stake.
And the United heroes are hoping Salford prove they’re up to the task against Leeds.
England women’s manager Neville said: “It is a big game. It’s probably the biggest team we’ve ever had, played against or had to the Peninsula Stadium.
“It’s the type of night we want, it’s the type of team we want to be playing against.”
Scholes echoed Neville’s thoughts, insisting Salford are hoping to be a Premier League club one day.
“Where do we go the next five or 10 years? Who knows?” Scholes added.
“I know it’s a long way off, but the target has to be getting to the Premier League at some point.
“We want the big games like Leeds. I don’t think in the whole draw we could have got a bigger or better club, so we’re looking forward to it.”
