And what about the big boys looking to avoid a cupset next month?

There’s holders Leicester City (ball 22) – who beat European champions Chelsea (ball 13) 1-0 in the final last May. Premier League champions Manchester City (ball 25) are in the hat as are 14-time winners of the competition Arsenal (ball 2). 

Manchester United (ball 26) will hope for an easy route into round four as will Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool (ball 23). 

So who are the non-league sides to look out for?

Kidderminster Harriers are the lowest ranked team left in the competition. They play in the sixth tier and beat Halifax Town 2-0 on Sunday.

Chesterfield, who lead the National League, are also in the hat after beating the Class of 92’s Salford City yesterday.

Yeovil Town are the other non-league side looking for a killer draw – they beat Stevenage 1-0 in round two over the weekend. Boreham Wood and St Albans City face each other tonight to round off the round two games. 

Strangely enough, there was only one round two fixture that needed a replay. Barrow managed to hold Ipswich Town to a goalless draw at Portman Road this weekend.
