While the hosts overcame Colchester United in the round of 32 to progress to this stage, MK Dons navigated their way past Newport County in the last round of the competition.

Bristol Rovers earned promotion from League Two last season, and it has been a strong campaign for the club to date, with a total of 28 points from 21 matches leaving them in 12th place in the League One table.

The Pirates are actually just three points behind sixth-placed Peterborough United on the same number of games, and it would be some story if they were in a position to challenge for a spot in the Championship entering the business end of the season.

Joey Barton’s side enter the contest off the back of a 1-0 victory over Port Vale in the league on Saturday, and they have lost just one of their last seven matches, which came 2-0 reverse to Boreham Wood in the FA Cup at the end of last month.

Bristol Rovers finished second behind Plymouth Argyle in Group E to progress to the next round of the EFL Trophy, where they claimed a 2-1 victory over Colchester to advance to this stage.

Meanwhile, MK Dons finished third in League One last season, only missing out on automatic promotion by a single point, but they then lost to Wycombe Wanderers in the semi-finals of the playoffs.

However, the Dons have found it difficult this season, picking up just 15 points from their 20 matches, which has left them in 23rd place in the table.

They enter the contest off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Fleetwood Town in the league on Saturday, and they have not been victorious in the third tier since the end of October, which has led to the sacking of Liam Manning, with an announcement being made on Sunday.

As they will now be led by captain Dean Lewington on an interim basis for this game, this club has enjoyed success in the EFL Trophy this season, finishing top of Group C of the Southern Section with six points before defeating Newport County 3-1 in the round of 32 last time out.
