There will be a Lincolnshire derby as Conference Premier side Grimsby host Scunthorpe United, of League Two, in the ties played on 9 and 10 November.

Conference South side Bishop's Stortford will welcome Aidy Boothroyd's League Two strugglers Northampton Town, while their league rivals Staines Town travel to near neighbours Brentford, where Swans manager Marcus Gayle started his career.

And fellow non-league clubs Gloucester and St Albans City host Football League opposition in the form of Fleetwood and Mansfield respectively.
