Liverpool side will face Blue Square Premier opponents in the FA Cup third round.

Matt Rhead’s last-minute equaliser for Mansfield in the 3-3 second-round draw with non league counterparts Lincoln means the two sides must replay next week for the honour of hosting one of the giants of the English game.

Lincoln are aiming to reach the third round of the FA Cup for only the second time in 14 years, while Mansfield last qualified for that stage in the 2007-08 season.

Liverpool finished runners-up in the competition during the last campaign, losing 2.1 to chelsea in May’s final at Wembley.
