If you exclude the big teams, Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea, this is probably the best we could have hoped for. Rivalry is there between the two clubs and it's pretty big, although many sweep it under the carpet, it is acutally bigger than the Vale rivalry for Crewe in terms of hatred.

So Stoke away. In June & July we got endless stick from the Potters fans because of our relegation and they're apparently better - well now we have the chance to show them who is the pride of the 'Radio Stoke area'.

Other ties look good aswell. Amazingly the smallest club in the compeition face Arsenal as the Gooners visit Farnborough. Shrewsbury take on high-flying Chelsea... While our old friend Rivers gets a lovley trip to Plymouth or Dagenham.

Norwich or Brighton v Plymouth or Dagenham
Southampton v Cambridge Utd or Millwall

Blackburn v Bolton or Sunderland
Rochdale v Cardiff or Coventry
Fulham v Charlton
Sheff Utd v Ipswich
Shrewsbury v Chelsea
Stoke v Bournemouth or Crewe
Brentford v Grimsby or Burnley
