The League 2 side conquered League 1 Wolves on Tuesday night, earning them a crack at a giant killing when the Magpies come to town.

It is the first time the sides have ever met and will be a maiden visit to the Globe stadium for Newcastle, which opened for business in 2010. With a capacity of 6,400, Morecambe had a crowd of little over 2,500 for the 1-0 win over Wolves.

Last year the Geordies league cup run came to an end at Old Trafford when Manchester United ran out 2-1 winners, after Newcastle had received a bye to the third round due to their Europa League involvement.

The last time Newcastle fell at the second round stage was back in 1990, when Middlesbrough edged a two-legged affair 2-1 on aggregate.

The clash with Morecambe will be played on the week beginning August 26 and a winner will be determined on the night, with extra time and penalties utilised if necessary.
