Ex-Blackburn Rovers and Chelsea striker Chris Sutton

It’s a shining pull for Sutton. Normally a large Premier League teams get a home draw.

Lincoln will be kaleidoscopic with a small disappointment. No disregard to Burnley, though if Burnley don’t play their strongest side we can't order Lincoln out.

They have a bravery, they deserved to kick Ipswich and Brighton, they have a shining immature government group – though I’m gutted they didn’t get a home draw.
