Johnstone's Paint Trophy: Area Quarter-Final preview

10 November 2015

The Area Quarter-Finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy take place this week, with eight games spread over two days.

Morecambe have already got the better of Walsall and Bury on their Trophy travels this season, and they visit another Sky Bet League 1 club on Tuesday; this time Rochdale.

York City are the other side representing Sky Bet League 2 in the Northern Section - they too face higher-division opposition in Barnsley, with new boss Jackie McNamara seeking a first win since taking charge of the Minstermen last week.

Two all-League 1 ties complete the Northern Section, with Fleetwood Town taking on Sheffield United and Wigan Athletic welcoming Blackpool to the DW Stadium.

League 1 high-flyers Gillingham play League 2 strugglers Yeovil Town in the Southern Section on Tuesday, and two in-form teams - Plymouth Argyle and Millwall - meet at Home Park.

The Pilgrims remain top of League 2, and their form saw Derek Adams crowned as October's Manager of the Month.

Millwall boast an in-form player, though - Aiden O'Brien picked up October's Player's honour in League 1.
