Preview | Leicester City Under-21s (H) - Checkatrade Trophy Northern Group B

7 November 2018

Rochdale v Leicester City Under-21s | Crown Oil Arena, Checkatrade Trophy Northern Group B, Wednesday 7th November 2018, 7.45pm Kick-Off

Dale need just one point from Wednesday’s game against Leicester City Under-21s to win Northern Group B in the Checkatrade Trophy.

Two wins from two mean Dale have already qualified for the knockout stages, with only Bury able to overtake Keith Hill’s men.

Leicester have two points, coming in a penalty shootout victory over Fleetwood Town, before losing their second game 2-1 at Bury.



If the scores are level after 90 minutes, a penalty shootout will take place to determine who takes the bonus point on offer.

Penalty shootouts also return to the traditional format of ‘ABAB’.



Supporters can pay through the turnstiles for Tuesday night’s match.

Adult tickets are just £10, with Juniors (16 and under) at just £5.

The Main Stand is open to home supporters, while the Reside Estate Agency Stand will house visiting supporters.
