Odds on a Wembley return are shortening for Pompey
Sunday, 17th Nov 2019 14:20 by staff

Pompey will entertain Northampton in the Trophy second round.

The holders were undefeated in their three group matches and may now start to fancy their chances of a return to Wembley, where they won the trophy last March, beating Sunderland on penalties after a 2-2 draw.

Seven Premier League academy sides were also in the last-32 draw.

Manchester City and Manchester United's under-21 sides drew Shrewsbury Town and Tranmere Rovers respectively, although in both cases the ties have been switched to their opponents' home grounds.

Chelsea's under-21s go to Walsall, Newport go to Brighton's development squad while Leicester Under-21s host Doncaster.

Salford City, in their first season in the competition, welcome the Wolves youngsters and Fleetwood drew Everton Under-21s.

The competition is regionalised up until the quarter-finals, when the draw becomes open.

Ties will be played in the first week of December.
