Accrington Stanley have drawn Manchester United Under-21s in the second round of the Papa John's Trophy.

United are one of seven Category A academies to have made it out of the group stage, with the last 32 clubs split into a North and South section.

Manchester City Under-21s will host Tranmere Rovers, while last season's finalists Salford City are at home to Leicester City Under-21s.

Portsmouth, who last won the trophy in 2019, will travel to Cheltenham.
