Portsmouth would just down my street, although The Amex isn't too far either and would be a new ground for me...

South

Group Winners.....Colchester United, Portsmouth, Brighton and Hove Albion U21's, Walsall, Exeter City, Bristol Rovers, MK Dons, Peterborough
Runners Up.....Ipswich Town, Oxford United, Leyton Orient, Coventry City, AFC Newport County, Chelsea U21's, Stevenage, Northampton Town


North

Group Winners.....Leicester City U21's, Accrington Stanley, Salford City, Port Vale, Everton U21's, Manchester City U21's, Blackpool, Manchester United U21's
Runners Up....Scun thorpe United, Fleetwood Town, Tranmere Rovers, Shrewsbury Town, Mansfield Town, Bolton Wanderers, Wolves U21's. Doncaster Rovers.

The Northern U21 teams seem to have taken things more seriously!!

I can't work out why Leicester (30 miles north of us) are in the North, yet Walsall (60 miles north of us) are in the South!!

Could it be so that both groups had equal number of U21 teams?

So North/South divide worked out separately for U21's and the Div1/Div2 teams

Always a problem with Midland clubs if you have a north/south split. Haven't Brackley and Corby been both north and south?

The way the draw is been set up means we can only face one of four opponents.....this ensures that none of the runners up could be drawn against the winners of the group that they played in.

One of Colchester, Portsmouth, Brighton or Walsall will be our opponents

To guarantee that no team can meet the same group winner who they have already played.

The winners from groups A,B,C and D play the runners up from E,F,G and H
The winners from E,F,G and H can play the runners up from A,B,C and D

Otherwise there would have been a chance of the last two teams in the draw having played in the same group.....

50% chance of one of my (and Horsham's) preferences then...

Walsall clearly the best possible draw. The most local and we're better than them.

I'd imagine we'd beat Brighton too.

Most likely to be on the Wednesday due to the FA Cup being on Sunday.

Surprisingly it didn't get moved to the Wednesday, so now we are playing Sunday pm and Tuesday evening. Probably different teams/squads granted, but with prize money on offer for both games its not like we can afford just to forget about this game......

So Pompey have a home game against Rotherham in the league tomorrow,  Altrincham at home in the Cup on Saturday, us in the EFL Trophy at home on Tuesday and then another home league game against the Posh on the Saturday.

Play the first team v Notts as more of a priority (prize money & possibility of a decent draw IF we win)

Play fringe / youth v Pompey limiting the possibility of injuries to regular first team players...
