ROVERS’ reward should they beat Wrexham on Wednesday would be a third round home tie with Stoke City in the FA Youth Cup, while Burnley have been drawn against Leeds United. 

Despite Rovers being a Category One Academy, the first-team's League One status meant they entered the competition at the first round stage, beating Tranmere 1-0 earlier this month.

That set up a second round tie with Wrexham at Ewood Park on November 15, with the Potters awaiting the winners. Billy Barr’s side have been hit by unavailability in the league, with several players having been used predominantly for the Under-23s, and were beaten 6-0 by Stoke last month.

The Potters were beaten semi-finalists last season. 

Rovers reached the semi-finals of the competition in 2015/16 and have won the competition once, in 1959, as well as being runners-up in 1998, 2001 and 2012.

Burnley will meet fellow Category Two Academy side Leeds United in round three having entered the competition at this stage.

Danny Cadamarteri’s are eighth in the table with 12 games played, with Leeds sitting second. The two sides are scheduled to meet in the league for the first time on November 25.

Burnley have won the competition once, in 1968, courtesy of a 3-2 win over Coventry City. 

Accrington Stanley were knocked out of the competition on Thursday evening as they lost 3-2 to Coventry City having progressed in to round two courtesy of a 1-0 win over Rochdale. 

Third round ties must be played by Saturday, December 16, with the fourth round draw set to take place on Friday, December 8.
