Oxford United will face rivals Swindon Town in the opening round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy next month.

The competition is often low down on clubs' priorities but the prospect of a derby at the Kassam Stadium is likely to attract a good crowd.

United did the double over Swindon in the league last season, winning 2-0 at home in March.

The tie will be played in the week commencing Monday, September 3.
