Johnstone's Paint Trophy Area Semi-Finals review

8 December 2015

Fleetwood Town secured their place in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area Final for the second time in three seasons after defeating Morecambe 2-0 at Highbury.

Second-half strikes from David Ball and Jimmy Ryan helped the Cod Army set up a clash with Barnsley, who progressed courtesy of a penalty shoot-out victory over Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

The winner of that tie will face Oxford United or Millwall, who beat Yeovil Town and Southend Unied respectively in their Southern Area Semi-Final ties.

Sky Bet League 2 leaders Oxford eased to a 3-2 win following goals from Jordan Evans, Callum O'Dowda and Chris Maguire, against bottom-of-the-table and managerless Yeovil.

Millwall brushed aside Southend in an all-Sky Bet League 1 clash at Roots Hall, after goals either side of half-time from Steve Morison and Shaun Williams.
