O’s to face Bristol Rovers in the second round of the Papa John’s Trophy

access_time 3 months ago

Leyton Orient will host Bristol Rovers in the Second Round of the Papa John’s Trophy.

Ross Embleton’s team were handed a home tie because they topped their group, on the other hand, Rovers finished second in their group and will now travel The Breyer Group Stadium for the knock-out fixture.

Both teams met at this stage of the competition last year; Bristol Rovers edged the tie winning 4-2 on penalties after Lee Angol’s equaliser forced the shoot-out.

The O’s beat Brighton U21s and Wimbledon in the earlier stages of the competition; a loss to Charlton denied a perfect record but couldn’t prevent Orient keeping 1st place and cementing a home draw.

Round Two matches will be played in the week commencing 7th December.
