The tie is scheduled for the weekend of November 9th/10th, with the Portman Road club’s official Twitter channel @IpswichTown informing followers of the impending fixture after the draw was made.

The teams met in the third round of the competition three seasons ago, when Lincoln caused a massive upset by eliminating the Tractor Boys after a replay – Ipswich were three divisions above the Imps at the time, but they are now both in League One.

The relegation of Paul Lambert’s team from the Championship last season means they will begin their FA Cup run two months earlier than in recent years, when they joined in the third round due to their presence in the top two divisions of English football.

Ipswich will hope to end a miserable FA Cup run stretching back almost a decade – having lost to Accrington Stanley in the third round last term, their most recent win in the competition came against Blackpool in January 2010, as per East Anglian Daily Times.

These Ipswich fans on Twitter were not pleased with being drawn against Lincoln once more in the cup:
