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.

The Premier League and Championship sides providing the ‘scalps’ some will look to claim are Reading, Newcastle, Stoke, Leicester, Brighton, Southampton and Sunderland, who take on Colchester, Crewe, Blackburn, Fleetwood, MK Dons, Peterborough and Scunthorpe respectively.

All-League One affairs will see Blackpool come up against Wigan and Chesterfield verses Bradford with Exeter and Yeovil an interesting West Country meeting between the two League Two clubs.

Barnet are among the League Two clubs looking to upset a League One opponent, playing host to Wimbledon.
