Holders Man City, who beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 on Friday night, have been paired up with Luton Town away from home, while Maidstone United, the lowest-ranked team left in the competition after their stunning upset at Ipswich Town, will hope to continue their miraculous journey when they face Sheffield Wednesday or Coventry City.
