05/09/2023 9:00 pm
The first match in Group K of the EFL Trophy will see AFC Wimbledon face Stevenage at The Cherry Red Records Stadium on Tuesday night.
The hosts enter the contest off the back of a 2-2 draw with Newport County on Saturday, while the visitors secured a 3-0 victory over Leyton Orient in League One.
Wimbledon will be fairly content with their start to the campaign as their 2-2 draw against Newport County on Saturday mainatined their unbeaten record in the league this season, leaving them on 10 points after six matches and in fifth place.
Across all competitions, the Dons have won three, drawn four and lost just one game this season, which was against Premier League opponents Chelsea in the Carabao Cup second round last week.
Stevenage have also began the 2023-24 campaign on a positive note, securing 13 points in their first six matches in the league, and are already in third place in the early stages, level on points with Exeter City, Bolton and Port Vale.
Boro have won five, drawn one and lost two of their eight matches across all competitions this season, and while they managed to defeat Watford in the Carabao Cup first round, they were knocked out of that competition by Exeter City on penalties last week.
With a very good record against this opponent, including five wins in their last seven meetings, Steve Evans’ side will be expecting to get their EFL Trophy campaign off to a winning start here.
