The Sides Town Could Meet Away in the Next Round of the Leasing.com Trophy
Wednesday, 13th Nov 2019 00:11
Town could travel to a Premier League stadium or make a long trek to the South West in the second round of the Leasing.com Trophy.
The Blues will be away from home in the round of 32 as a result of Colchester’s victory at the JobServe Community Stadium having seen the U’s finish top of the group and Town second.
Paul Lambert’s men will therefore travel to play one of the other southern group winners. Portsmouth, Brighton and Hove Albion U21s, Walsall, MK Dons and Peterborough United are all confirmed winners, while Exeter City will join them unless they fall to a 2-0 defeat to West Ham's U21s this evening in which case the Hammers' youngsters will go through.
Chelsea U21s or Bristol Rovers will be the seventh potential opponent with the last game in that group tonight when the Pirates host Swindon. Second round ties will take place in the first week of December.
Unlike in the group stage, Premier League U21s sides in the competition play home games in the knockout phase.
The draw for the second round will take place live on Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday at 2pm with former Colchester striker Clinton Morrison and ex-England midfielder Sue Smith in charge of picking the balls from the bowl.

Politics and Ipswich Town by ElephantintheRoom
You might just have noticed that the TWTD Forum is awash with political comment. Annoying for some perhaps, who only want to discuss Norwood’s fitness – but surely no bad thing, given the stark choices facing us at a critical time in the country’s history?
The Story Behind the Billy Kee Banner by ThatMuhrenCross
Sunday's defeat to Accrington Stanley was the first real low point of what has been a fantastic season following Ipswich Town. The performance on the field was nowhere near the standards we'd expect of a team that was flying high at the top of the table.
History Boys and Renaissance Men by Stowmarket
How many of us who were fortunate enough to have followed ITFC back in 1980 realised at the time that we were indeed blessed to be around to witness the greatest ever Ipswich Town side?
Round Three: Eagle by Kropotkin123
Par was set at five points from one win and two draws. We managed to get a haul of seven points, which means we were two under par. Google promises me that this is an eagle.
