The Hatters haven't gone to Stamford Bridge since August 1991, when they lost a Division One clash 4-1.

Town drew 0-0 with the Owls at Hillsborough on Saturday, meaning the sides will do it again at Kenilworth Road, and speaking ahead of the tie was announced, goalkeeper James Shea thought whoever the Hatters were paired with could make them want to win the replay even more.

He said: "It could give you more incentive, so if we get a big boy, someone like that, we’ll think, 'right, we want that.'

"It will probably give you more of an incentive to go and do the job at home."

Striker Danny Hylton added: "It will always help (knowing who you're playing).

"You can have it in the back of your mind, but you can’t really focus too much on that.

"We've got to focus on the 90 minutes in hand and the challenge in front of us and if we can get past Sheffield Wednesday, we can look forward to that."
