Gillingham will find out on Sunday afternoon what their reward for the FA Cup win at Bury is.
The draw for the second round - just one away from the big boys of the Premier League - takes place at Soho Square at 1.45pm, with the balls being drawn out by Lawrie Sanchez and Ray Parlour.
The Gills are ball number seven in the draw - the numbers correspond to where the teams were drawn out in the first round - and will hope for a home tie.
History would suggest that we'll be playing a team whose name begins with a B though - the last five FA Cup draws have handed them ties with Burscough, Bromley, Bristol City, Barnet and Bury.
So, erm, look out Blyth Spartans?
Blyth were one of the heroes of first-round day, beating Shrewsbury 3-1, while Curzon Ashton beat Exeter and our old friends from Swindon were dumped out by Histon.
There will be at least 10 non-league teams still in the competition - seven definitely through and three more guaranteed to join them from replays - so the draw could well throw up an interesting tie for the Gills.
