The reward for the winners will be a home second-round tie with Chi City, to be televised live by BT Sport on Sunday, December 1.

The replay is needed after the two League One sides drew 2-2 at Prenton Park in the original tie.

The teams also met in League One on Sunday, Wycombe winning 2-0 at Prenton Park thanks to goals by Adebayo Akinfenwa and Jacobson.

Following the replay, the task of selling tickets for the replay can begin in earnest - with Chi City reporting significant interest from fans who intend to make the trip.
