Maidstone drawn away to Sheffield Wednesday or Coventry

Maidstone, who beat Ipswich at Portman Road, are the lowest-ranked team still in the competition. The National League South side made history by becoming the first side outside of the top five tiers to reach the fifth round since Northumbrian cup fighters Blyth Spartans in 1978, having entered in the second-round qualifying.
