That’s if Danny Cowley’s men get past Exeter in tomorrow’s second round clash at St James’ Park - and Cambridge United in next Tuesday’s scheduled tie at the Abbey Stadium

The Blues are playing catch-up after Covid cancellations over the Christmas period, with third-round ties taking place this week.

And it’s a long trek to Yorkshire in the offing with the draw not regionalised at the quarter-final stage.
