Will FA Cup draw be kind?

After disposing homeless Coventry in the FA Cup dustbin, all we can hope for is another home draw against lesser opposition. By that, I mean a team outside the Premier League.
I'd choose Sheffield Wednesday as that would involve a long-ish trip for our opponents, rather than Charlton, who are just across the water.
Watford proved against Man City that no game is easy in this competition and, despite our 4-0 win, leaving Flamini out seems to leave us rather open at the back. Coventry could have easily scored twice, had Lady Luck been on their side, so I'd stick Flames in from the start to avoid taking risks.
Nevertheless, we won't really be able to calculate our chances of winning the cup until the draw is made. If it puts us at home against Wednesday and Man City against Chelsea, I'll be pleased with that.
