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.

Many League One and League Two clubs will be looking to claim U21 scalps again - Newcastle, West Brom, Reading, Leicester, Southampton, Brighton, Stoke and Sunderland's 'youngsters' facing trips to Football League clubs.
