Dereham boss Matt Henman said the prospect of a home draw was a “massive, massive incentive” for the Magpies.
“It is a decent draw and the first thing is we would be at home. We do not want to get carried away as we are not through but the prospect of a home draw is a huge plus.”
Christchurch are currently eighth in the Wessex League - the same division as Wimbourne, who were beaten by Larkhall and who Dereham then defeated in the fourth round.
Chalfont St Peter are eighth in the Spartans South Midlands League - which is also in fifth tier of the football pyramid.
Meanwhile, Dereham's Norfolk Senior Cup semi-final tie against Wroxham on Tuesday night has been postponed and is now due to be played on Tuesday February 17, although that could still have to change if the Needham Market game is called off again this weekend.
Henman said the Aldiss Park pitch is “as heavy as I have ever seen it.”
