West Ham will travel to to fellow first division side Cardiff in the second round of the Carling Cup, ensuring a further headache for the South Wales police - and a bumper audience for Sky TV.
Much had already been said about the Hammers impending visit to Cardiff, a team known for the hooligan element amongst their supporters.
But now West Ham fans ready to visit Ninian Park will have to run the gauntlet twice this season, after the Hammers were drawn away to the top Welsh side in the second stage of the Carling Cup.
Sky declared earlier today that the game will be broadcast live on one of their sports channels. The game takes place on Tuesday, 23rd September (7.45pm kick off).
That will be the first of two appearances the teams will be making on live TV; the Nationwide Division One league clash - also at Ninian Park on Saturday, 25th October - is also being broadcast live. That one kicks off (on the pitch, at least) at 5.35pm.
