The lowest team left in the competition is Stourbridge from the seventh tier of the league. They are away to Wycombe Wanderers, who are currently in the play-off places of League Two. The other non-league sides left are Lincoln City (away to Ipswich), Barrow (home to Rochdale), Eastleigh (away to Brentford) and Sutton United (home to AFC Wimbledon).
