Hopefully no problems after Saturday's debacle with Covid-19, a win will see us through to the next round.
It may yet get called off if this rain persistsWith the Crewe game postponed perhaps KR will field a strong team to keep the Accrington momentum going into next Saturday. There’ll always be the risk of new injuries of course but either way, it’ll also be interesting to see how many of the currently injured players make a return on Tuesday and feature at some point.
Given the status of the FL Trophy as a
second thirdfourth rate competition....
...is this a legitimate chance to end our home hoodoo vs Rovers, or not?
a competition , (thanks to the EFL inability to run a proverbial pissup in a brewery), that has alienated many fans of most lower league clubs, ( Wembley final excepted) yet club hierarchies have supported the current format- due to the £ on offer -( though is there actually a sponsor this season? leasing.com maybe? but it is EFL trophy without a sponsors name attached currently- if no sponsor presumably no prize money? ) which certainly for the group stages and knock out rounds way exceeded the zero prize £ for the carabao/league cup until semi-final/ final stages, - which has more 'kudos'In the current climate its a bit less "pointless shite" to be fair, although I personally despise it and only drop my moral stance if we reach the final.
In 2017-18 League One and League Two clubs received £20,000 participation fee plus money on results in the group stages.
EFL were giving out £10,000 for a win and £5,000 for a draw.
Again, if the numbers are similar, it’s a cheque for £20,000 for every team to win a "round of 32" tie after the group stage and then £40,000 in the last 16.
Any team winning a quarter-final earns £50,000 and then another £50,000 if they reach the final and lose.
The winners receive a cheque for £100,000.
yeah my bad. thought i read it was leasing.com sponsorship for 2 years but apparently not
