League One side Grimsby, who eliminated Championship leaders Wigan from the competition last night, are at home to Charlton while Lincoln’s 3-1 comeback victory over Derby has earned them a trip to St Andrews to face Birmingham.

Prolific FA Cup giantkillers Yeovil, who knocked out Plymouth in round one, are at home to last year’s losing finalists Bolton.

Northampton’s victory over Gillingham has set up a home tie with Southampton at Sixfields, Oldham face Tottenham at Boundary Park after dumping out Stoke and Bristol Rovers’ reward for their win over Brighton is a trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich.

The second-round ties will be played in the week commencing September 20.
