Tonight, we find out who our opponents will be. Although an unpopular competition, a day out at Wembley and mid table would make this season bearable.

I’d rather have finished playoffs than get to the Checkatrade final

I'd rather shag Emma Stone but it's not going to happen.

Do you remember Neilson's 2nd game against Yeovil? Got smashed 4-1. We can't have that our confidence is shot to shit as it is. I want us to do well regardless of the politics just to get some motivation.

It's each to their own, and I know many share that view, but I personally want us to be successful at any competition we enter. OK, the Football League Trophy (in its many guises, not just Checkatrade) is a small competition, but that's the very reason why we have a chance of winning it! If we had a choice of winning the CL, Europa League, FA Cup, etc, then the Football League Trophy would be very low on the list. But we don't have that choice. Our only hopes of success each season is promotion and winning the Football League Trophy (and a "run" in the FA and League cups). I personally don't think the only cup we can realistically win, or a day out at Wembley, is "beneath" us, and I really hope we take the games serious.

I was there, permanently etched in my memory, a real sanity check.

This. We took it seriously enough in 2008. Silverware. History.

As an aside, we all remember Drewe’s legendary winning penalty in the semi, but who remembers Drissa’s penalty into the top corner which won an earlier round that season?

I bet Yeovil was lovely in early December. Least we are at home this season. We need to take it seriously. As I say confidence and competitive practice if nothing else!
