The tie will see Reds head coach Kevin Betsy take on one of his former clubs. The 44-year-old made 20 appearances in all competitions, scoring once, during a four-year spell at Craven Cottage between 1998 and 2002.

This will be the first competitive meeting between Crawley and the West London club. The two sides met in a pre-season friendly in July 2018, with Fulham running out 4-2 winners at Broadfield Stadium.
