surely with our finances its got to be home to a top 4 team having won all our games so tv picks us live, draw at home followed by a financially lucrative replay. Alternatively it will be away to Shrewsbury/Rotherham

A nice little cup run would do nicely, so hope for a nice kind of easy home draw.
