The draw was made by former FA Cup Finalist and England international Graeme Le Saux and FA Cup hero Ronnie Radford, whose famous goal for Hereford United in 1972 helped to knock out Newcastle United in one of the biggest Cup upsets in the history of the competition.

Of course, The Ronnie Radford Award has been introduced this season and will go to the club who produce the biggest Cup upset each season. There are already numerous candidates for the Award, such as Stevenage for their Third Round win against Newcastle United, FC United of Manchester who beat Rochdale in the First Round or even Crawley Town, who take on Manchester United on Saturday after knocking out League sides Torquay United and Derby County in the previous two rounds.
