How much could Peterborough United earn?

Winning sides in the first round will receive £36,000 though, unlike the qualifying rounds, losing sides do not get any prize money between the first round and quarter-final.

Does the Bury situation make a difference to the draw?

Due to Bury’s expulsion from the EFL, the last team left in the hat will get a bye to the second round. So, in theory, Posh could advance to the second round without kicking a ball.
