Victory over Coventry sees Norwich City go into the draw for both the fourth and fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday evening.
The draws for both of the next rounds are scheduled to kick-off from 7.10pm on Monday, ahead of West Ham's tie at Stockport.
Progress means the Championship trip to Millwall on Saturday, January 23 will have to be rearranged, who also progressed today with a 2-0 win at non-league Boreham Wood.
The 2-0 win over the Sky Blues, thanks to early goals from Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill, has earned City £61,500 - with £90,000 up for grabs in the next round, after the FA Cup prize fund was halved due to the financial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic at the Football Association.
Further welcome funds could be generated from broadcasting deals, with the eight 'primary selections' for the third round earning £75,000 per club, whereas City and Coventry earned £37,500 each for their game being broadcast on BT Sport Extra Five.
In footballing terms however it allows Canaries boss Daniel Farke to potentially give more minutes to some of the players who featured today after injuries, such as Xavi Quintilla, Bali Mumba and Przemek Placheta.
