PAPA JOHN'S TROPHY: Draw to take place on Saturday

Second round draw live on Sky Sports

9 November 2021

The draw for Round Two of the Papa John’s Trophy will take place live on Sky Sports Football on Saturday 13 November.

Sky Bet League Two takes centre stage on Sky Sports at Saturday lunchtime as second-placed Port Vale face Bradford City in the 12pm kick-off, with the Papa John’s Trophy draw taking place at full-time.

The draw will be hosted by David Prutton and conducted by former Newport County Manager Michael Flynn, alongside Chris Birchall, who gained promotion with Port Vale in 2013.

Round Two remains split regionally into a Northern and Southern section with group winners drawn at home against a runner-up from another group.

In the Northern section, Carlisle United are already through, and the result of tonight's game against Morecambe will determine whether we will be drawn at home or away. A win or a draw would ensure we top the group, meaning we would be guaranteed a home tie.

Rotherham United and Bolton Wanderers are also already through to Round Two after topping their respective groups with a maximum of nine points. In the Southern section, Aston Villa U21 will be in the hat for the next round alongside MK Dons, Charlton Athletic and Leyton Orient who have also qualified for the next stage of the competition.

The final group matches take place 9-10 November with two clubs progressing to the last 32 from each group.

Round Two ties will be played week commencing 29 November.
