That's a really uninspiring list of lower and non league qualifiers IMO.

I actually reckon we will get a home tie against a lower league side

I predict Bradford or MK Dons

Away to a team we are already scheduled to play twice this year in the championship, additionally either with a 5 hour plus round journey or a team we have already played in the League cup (ie Millwall), please.

After a quite miserable 2nd round with barely any shocks whatsoever there are only 4 non-league sides left. Three are in replays and Slough play tonight. Could see a 3rd Round with no non-league clubs

Personally hope Reading get the winners of Slough or Rochdale although Carlisle might be fun tie to get if they can beat Gillingham

But whatever happens just DO NOT want a PL or another Championship club. So Newcastle or Wolves away it'll be then :roll:

Always wanted to go to Hereford. Port Vale, Yeovil and Shrewsbury would also be lovely

I always want Tottenham away (or home, tbf) every year - due to family connections

Got a feeling it will be a top 10 championship club away.
