Bristol City to play Bristol Rovers in JPT

Ties to be played in the first week of September.

Bristol City have been drawn against local rivals Bristol Rovers in the first round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

It will be the first time the two sides have met competitively since 2007 - when Rovers knocked City out of the same competition in the two-legged area final.

England debutant Rickie Lambert scored the goal at the Memorial Stadium to send Rovers through to the final in Cardiff 1-0 on aggregate.

Cheltenham Town also have a West Country derby as they've been drawn at home to Plymouth Argyle - their opponents at Whaddon Road this afternoon.

Swindon Town received a 'bye' into the next round.

The games will be played in the first week of September.
