Also some changes for the league cup. No extra time, penalties at 90 mins if needed and original format not abba anymore, round one will still be a north south split but the first two rounds will not be seeded anymore so we could get another league two side.

Mk Dons first league game and in the cup anyone?

I wonder if we'll take this more seriously under Taylor. Yeovil got to the semis of the thing this year - Yeovil! If they can, we can. Also, going far didn't seem to stop Lincoln progressing in the league.

So MKDons at SJP twice in the first week of the season?

As to Lincoln their manager said that in the play off semi esp first leg they were missing key players with injuries after a very long/packed season

Looks like the Bristol Rovers game will be at home as the Yeovil game has to be away (we played them at home last season).
" ... if there is a situation where two teams meet in the Group Stages for a second successive season, then the club who was at home in 2017/18 will play away in 2018/19. All EFL clubs will play two of their three matches at home in the Group Stages".
