Keith Curle's side are the lowest-ranked side left in the competition and join 11 Premier League clubs in the draw, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United.

The 16 teams to successfully navigate this weekend's fourth-round ties will go into the hat, with the draw being conducted by former England internationals and cup winners Teddy Sheringham and Glen Johnson.

The draw, which will be broadcast in the UK on BBC One's The One Show, is scheduled to begin at 7.19pm.

There are no replays in the fifth round of the FA Cup this season and ties will take place in midweek at the start of March. Any ties that are level after 90 minutes will go to extra time and, if necessary, a penalty shoot-out to determine a winner on the night.
