“I really like the Wolves game because of the connection we had with them with Niall and Cameron being here.

“It’s good to rub shoulders with them again in a cup competition.

“Bradford, as we know, are strong. Oldham under Harry Kewell will be good.

“It’s a good group.”

Rovers will host Bradford in their opening game of the group, which is expected to take place on September 8.

They will visit Oldham in October before hosting Wolves U21s in November.
