They will travel to either League One Tranmere Rovers or Wycombe Wanderers. After knocking out Torquay United with a 1-0 win in Kent on Saturday, National League South Maidstone United were rewarded with a trip to Blackpool after their ball was the second to pulled out of the hat.

Maldon & Tiptree, who hosted the first round draw, were paired with either Grimsby or Newport County after their 2-1 triumph at Leyton Orient on Sunday.

And there’ll be at least one Non-League club in the third round after Kingstonian were rewarded for humbling Macclesfield Town 4-0 at Moss Rose yesterday with a home tie against National League AFC Fylde.
