Wednesday Miss Out On JPT Bye

Wednesday Miss Out On JPT Bye

Wednesday have missed out on being one of sixteen clubs to receive a bye in the first round of this season's Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The clubs, eight of which are in the northern section and eight in the southern section, involved in this year's competition found out today whether they'd received a bye straight to the second round.

But, despite both Plymouth Argyle and Peterborough United, both of whom were relegated from the Championship with Wednesday last season, receiving a bye - the Owls weren't so lucky.

It means Alan Irvine's men will be competing in the first round, in the nothern section east, with seven other clubs being in the same section,

It means Wednesday could face Chesterfield, Hartlepool United, Lincoln City, Northampton Town, Notts County, Rotherham United or Walsall in the first round.

The draw will take place on Sky's 'Soccer AM' programme on Saturday, August 14.

How is the bye system worked out, you would have thought we would be entitled to one, but never mind, its another game which = more money for the club + a chance to change things around a little squad wise.
