Former Tottenham youth player could not believe his luck in the Carabao Cup draw – until he realised who he could end up markingLuke Prosser could feel that something big was about to happen. The Colchester captain knew the numbers of the top Premier League clubs and, as the draw for the Carabao Cup third round went on, none had come out.
