Third round ties have to be played by Saturday, December 16, unless mutually agreed otherwise.

Last season, Nick Harrison's side reached the quarter-final of the competition, beating Sheffield United, Everton and AFC Wimbledon.

They bowed out against Stoke City, beaten 3-1 at Deepdale.

Josh Earl, now a first-team regular, was one of the players to feature in last season's run to the last eight.
