Twice winners Port Vale will face in-form League One leaders Shrewsbury Town in the second round of the EFL Trophy.

Vale, who lifted the trophy in 1993 and 2001, secured top spot in their first-round group with a 4-2 win over Crewe.

Oxford United, beaten finalists in the last two seasons, will travel to Gillingham who won 7-5 in an amazing match against Reading U21s.

Swansea City's youngsters will be at home to Charlton, while Leicester's U21s travel to Scunthorpe United.

Six of the 16 ties have yet to be finalised, with six first-round games still to be played on 28-29 November.

Academy sides were allowed into the competition last season and Manchester City, Chelsea and West Ham are still in contention to reach the knockout phase.
