A date has been for set for City U21s EFL Trophy second round tie against Shrewsbury Town.

Paul Harsley’s side will travel to Montgomery Waters Meadow on Tuesday 3 December for a 7.30pm kick-off.

City’s youngsters reached the last 32 after topping Northern Group F having recorded wins over Rochdale and Bradford City, before a defeat against Bolton Wanderers.

It meant we were guaranteed a home tie in the knockout stage, but we have received special dispensation to play away from home against Shrewsbury.

Sam Ricketts’ side are currently 11th in League One and qualified for the second round of the EFL Trophy thanks to a second placed finish in Northern Group D.

Ticket information will be confirmed in due course.
