Live on ITV1: Sun 12.00: Southport face draw-of-the-round Sheffield Wednesday and the Owls are 8/11 to win (Bet365).

Of course, it won’t be easy for the Owls on Merseyside, as the hosts will be quickly out of the blocks but they can nevertheless weather the early storm and ultimately prevail ‘to nil’ at Haig Avenue (2/1, 888Sport) where Jermaine Johnson can play a pivotal role. The winger is 7/1 at Ladbrokes to break the deadlock against the Blue Square Premier outfit.
