The Imps won away at Huddersfield in the first round on Tuesday night. Leeds, who won 3-0 at Salford will host fellow Championship side Stoke.

Sheffield United, our region's only Premier League team, will host Blackburn Rovers.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday will travel to Rotherham, if they can beat Bury in the first round. That tie was postponed due to financial problems at Bury FC.
