Leeds United have been drawn against League Two side Crawley Town away from home in The FA Cup third round.

The draw was held on Monday 30th November and drawn by Robbie Savage, who picked out the tough clash for The Whites against Crawley who currently sit 15th in League Two.

The tie will take place on the 9th/10th of January 2021 and will likely feature some young players that Leeds fans would love to see. Joe Gelhardt, Sam Greenwood, Charlie Cresswell and several others have shone so far this season in The Premier League 2 and could feature in this fixture.

Alongside the youngsters we are likely to see some more senior figures in the team as Leeds fans still await the debut of Diego Llorente as he returned to training recently following injuries.

The FA Cup has been a mixed bag for Leeds fans in recent years, with memories of defeats at Histon, Sutton United and Newport County not quite as happy as wins against Manchester United, Everton, Spurs and others while in lower leagues as Leeds fans dream of lifting The FA Cup for the first time since 1972.
