The EFL trophy, which traditionally was the cup competition between teams in League One and League Two was revamped in 2016 to allow young top-flight clubs to enter in this competition. Many supporters still dismiss the competition and insist it has lost its shine. Tonight Shrewsbury hosts Port Vale for the second time in just three days. The home team coach Cotterill fielded his under-18s side in the previous round against a Wolves U21 (1:2 defeat), and similar team is expected tonight, adding some players from the bench like Elliott Bennett, Charlie Caton, Tom Bloxham and Harry Burgoyne who were among the substitutes at Vale Park on Saturday. Port Vale will also rotate the team, but are in a better situation, because in the opening round, they won against Stockport County. I’m giving a slight advantage in this encounter to Port Vale to score another positive result.
