The draw hand Fulham a home game against struggling Third Division side Cheltenham Town. The Cottagers and Robins have never met before and Cheltenham have never played a top flight club in all of their 111 year history. Last season The Robins were beaten 4-0 in the 3rd round away at Sheff Utd after winning away at Yeovil and Oldham. Fulham were beaten 3-0 away at Burnley in a high octane 5th round replay 3-0 after beating Charlton and Birmingham in previous rounds. Their were a number of all Premiership ties Aston villa at home to Man , Birmingham at home to Blackburn, Arsenal away at Leeds, Man City at home to Leicester and Southampton at home to Newcastle.

Telford United's reward for reaching round three is a trip to Gresty Road to face Crewe Alexandra. Accrington Stanley will be at home to Colchester United if they see off Bournemouth in a replay.

Ties will be played on 3 and 4 January 2004 .
