EXTRA time has been scrapped in the Carabao Cup from next season following a vote among the EFL clubs at their summer conference.

Oxford United lost after 120 minutes in the first round to Cheltenham Town last season.

But in a bid to reduce fatigue, ties which finish level after 90 minutes will now go straight to a penalty shoot-out.

The seeding process for the first two rounds has also been abandoned, although the regionalised opening fixtures will remain.

EFL clubs have also voted to allow the option of not publishing a match programme.

Minor rule tweaks will also come into force in the Checkatrade Trophy next season.

EFL clubs can now feature players on loan at National League clubs, while invited teams will only be able to name two players who are over the age of 21 and have made more than 40 first team appearances.

There were discussions over how revenues are distributed from the 2019/20 campaign which would increase the proportion received by clubs in Leagues One and Two.
