Devon Trip For Pompey In JPT

Last updated : 08 August 2015 By Jim Bonner

Pompey have been drawn away at Exeter City in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

In all honesty it's doubtful many Portsmouth supporters will care too much about this draw. Whilst it would be nice to go to Wembley, there are simply too many games that need to be played to get there for what is a minor honour.

With promotion being the only real aim for the season, it's expected Paul Cook will play a few of his squad players, whoever they may be, for this match and Paul Tisdale is likely to do the same.

The match will be played on either Tuesday, September 1st or Wednesday, September 2nd depending on if the match is picked for television coverage or not.
