Town defeated Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday
The game is scheduled for Saturday, January 13.
City’s best run in the competition took them to the semi-final back in 1999, losing 4-3 to Forest Green Rovers.
The last time they got beyond the second round was in 2005 when victory over Cray Wanderers in a replay got them to a third round clash with Havant & Waterlooville, which they lost 1-0.
