Further details, including ticketing and travel information to follow.

Argyle manager John Sheridan welcomed the Pilgrims’ progress in the competition after this week’s first-round penalty shoot-out victory at Cheltenham.

He said: “Financially, it’s very good and I think it’s the best chance that some of our players will get to play in a cup final. We have got to be realistic – we are not going to get to the FA Cup final but this is a competition we can win.

“And it is a great day out. I won it at Chesterfield. It was a great occasion and everyone’ll remember it for a long time. To go and win a cup final, no matter what it is, is always good.

“But it’s tough to get there. You have got to beat teams who are in a higher division than you are and sometimes it’s the luck of the draw.”

“There’s nothing wrong in winning football matches so we need to take it very seriously now.”
