Barnet host Norwich City in their first EFL Checkatrade Trophy at The Hive this evening in what is the inaugural year of the competition.
The Bees drew 2-2 at MK Dons in their first group match to earn a point. However, under the competition’s rules a penalty shootout took place for an extra point. The Dons won from the spot.
All group winners and runners-up go into the round of 32.
EFL teams must field a minimum of five ‘first-team’ players in their starting XI.
Invited clubs must name six players aged under 21 of of June 30.
No player can play for more than one club in the season.
This means bookings and suspensions picked up in other competitions do not affect Checkatrade Trophy matches either.
Two bookings up to and including the quarter-finals mean a one-match suspension for the player in question.
You can see tonight’s game at The Hive as the first in our Four For £40/Four For £4 special offer in the South Terrace which also applies to our final Checkatrade Trophy fixture against Peterborough United.
