Pompey will face Norwich's youngsters in the group stage of the EFL Trophy.

The Premier League side were placed with the Blues, Crawley and Oxford in Friday's draw of invited under-21 clubs.

Kenny Jackett's side have two home group games in the competition, with the Canaries youngsters and League Two outfit Crawley visiting Fratton Park.

Pompey will also make the relatively short trip to fellow third tier side Oxford, with the dates and times of all matches to be confirmed.

Games are scheduled to be played in the weeks beginning September 2, October 7 and November 11, although there is some flexibility.

The 48 EFL clubs were placed into pre-determined groups, with consideration given to ensure travel time is minimised for supporters.
