Manager Sean O'Driscoll has hinted Doncaster Rovers' defence of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy may take second place to their League One programme this year.
Rovers thrashed Bradford City 5-1 in Tuesday's first-round clash at the Keepmoat Stadium, but O'Driscoll isn't sure he will be able to name his first-choice starting eleven as the tournament progresses.
"I'm glad to get the first round out of the way. We've got a quick turnaround as well with a game at Northampton on Friday," he said.
"I thought we were sharp from the start and the game was virtually over when we were three up at half-time.
We had a stranglehold on the game and when the confidence flows it becomes dead easy.
"We'd like to do well in the competition again, but the next round comes when you could probably do without a game that week."
