Posh Trip For Pompey In Papa John's Trophy

Blues on the road in third round

10 December 2020

Papa John

Pompey have been drawn away to fellow League One side Peterborough in the third round of the Papa John's Trophy.

The tie is scheduled to take place at London Road in the week commencing January 11.

It was only a week ago that the sides met at Fratton Park for a league fixture, with goals from Jack Whatmough and Tom Naylor securing a 2-0 victory.

And the Blues also came out on top in the only previous contest between the two clubs in the EFL Trophy.

A late goal from David Wheeler was enough to settle a quarter-final tie on the south coast in January 2019, with Kenny Jackett's men going on to lift the silverware at Wembley.

That was Pompey's only previous success in the competition – although they are still waiting to play last season's final against Salford.

Peterborough have also enjoyed one triumph at the national stadium, beating Chesterfield 3-1 in the 2014 showpiece.
