Vital Preview - EFL Trophy - 3rd October 2017

The EFL Trophy continues this midweek with the latest group matches played.

Previous results

Tuesday 19th September
Accrington Stanley 3-2 Middlesbrough U21 19:30
Bury 0-4 Rochdale 19:45
Walsall 3-1 West Bromwich Albion U21 19:45

Among the schedule is one for us of course so the hope will be that this can result in a win.

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw in the latest group game and that would mean a penalty shootout to determine a winner.

Southampton, Sunderland, Tottenham, Leicester, Brighton, Newcastle, Stoke, West Brom and Reading are the U21 sides in action this week - Cambridge, Doncaster, AFC Wimbledon, Carlisle, Oxford, Port Vale, Rochdale, Shrewsbury and Southend, respectively, are the sides hosting these teams and looking to upset them.

Plenty of all-League One and League Two ties will take with some interesting rivals meeting, including Fleetwood hosting Morecambe and Exeter travelling to Home Park to face Plymouth.
