Notts County vs. Shrewsbury (Friday, 7.45pm)
While the visitors are looking to progress beyond the second round for the seventh successive season, the hosts will endeavour reach the third round for the first time in six years.
We say: Notts County 2-1 Shrewsbury Town
A closely-fought contest could be on the cards on Friday considering there is little to separate these two teams. However, when taking into account Notts County's strong home form and goalscoring prowess, coupled with Shrewsbury's poor away record and lack of threat in the final third, we believe the hosts will do enough to secure their place in the third round.
York City vs. Wigan (Friday, 7.45pm)
While the Latics are competing in the second round for the third successive season, the Minstermen have progressed to this stage for the first time in 13 years.
We say: York City 1-3 Wigan Athletic
York will need to be clinical when presented with chances in the final third and show their resilience at the back if they wish to pull off an upset and excite the home crowd for Friday's televised fixture.
However, success against an in-form Wigan outfit could prove challenging and the visitors should ultimately have the edge in all departments, even if a few star names are rested, to come out on top.
