Newport - who beat Gillingham on penalties in the first round - should provide a tough challenge for their Premier League opposition, thanks to their excellent recent cup record under Michael Flynn. Last season they made it to the fifth round of the FA Cup, beating Premier League Leicester and Championship side Middlesbrough on the way to losing against eventual champions Manchester City.
The year before they saw off Leeds in the third round of the FA Cup before holding Tottenham to a draw at Rodney Parade, eventually being edged out 2-0 at Wembley in a fourth-round replay.
Lincoln, meanwhile, faced Everton in last season's FA Cup at Goodison Park and were edged out just 2-1 by the Premier League side.
They have enjoyed a meteoric rise under boss Danny Cowley, winning two promotions from the National League to League One in the past three seasons.
The Imps shocked Championship side Huddersfield in the first round and they also have a proud recent cup record. In 2017 they became the first non-league side in 103 years to make it to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, beating Premier League Burnley along the way, before eventually crashing out 5-0 at Arsenal.
