Ipswich Town will face Coventry City away in the FA Cup second round if they are able to win their replay at Lincoln City next Wednesday.

The Blues, entering the competition at the first round stage for the first time since 1956, came from behind to draw 1-1 against the Imps at Portman Road on Saturday after Paul Lambert made 10 changes to his starting XI.

Coventry are currently sixth in the League One table, seven points behind table-topping Town. Mark Robins' side won 2-0 at Colchester United on Saturday to book their place in the next round.

The Sky Blues are playing their home games at Birmingham City's home of St Andrew's this season after being forced to leave the Ricoh Arena.

Second round ties are scheduled for the weekend of November 30/31, with Birmingham scheduled to host Millwall on that Saturday.

Should Ipswich beat Lincoln it would mean facing Coventry away two weekends in a row given their league trip to St Andrew's is scheduled for December 7.

Meanwhile, Essex side Maldon & Tiptree, managed by former Ipswich defender Wayne Brown, will be facing another League Two team after their 2-1 win at Leyton Orient on Saturday. They were handed a home draw against either Grimsby Town or Newport County.
