Does being seeded affect the draw in any way?

Frippy .. I believe (but would need to check) that all it means at this stage is that you can not be drawn against another seeded team..

Oh yes that would be fun if we draw the deckchair wearers! I suppose they have one pot with the seeded teams and another with the unseeded - but then not sure how they decide who's at home and who's away?

Chix is only trying to build us up Mad. This is a competition we have not had a run in for some time. I fancy Accrington Stanley!! Who are they?

Whoever we get, I reckon we'll put out a reserve/youth side
