BURTON Albion will face Everton Under 21s in Northern Group E for the 2019/20 EFL Trophy along with League Two sides Crewe Alexandra and Mansfield Town.
The final composition of the group was confirmed in a draw on TalkSPORT this lunchtime.
Fixture dates as well as further ticket details for the EFL Trophy will also be confirmed in due course.
Nigel Clough said: "Everton will be a tough prospect as they are one of the clubs that take it as seriously as anybody. They have a strong Academy and will be as tough a Premier League side as we could have got out of the draw
"We want to try and win a game this year. It wasn't through lack of trying last year and the teams we put out played some very good stuff. It was also useful as it was a pecursor to the style of football we played later in the season."
