The most exciting domestic cup draw in the world takes place this weekend and Leeds will be hoping to be in it if they can get past the potential banana skin at Kettering Town.
The FA Cup 3rd Round draw sponsored by E.ON takes place this Sunday on ITV1 after the completion of the second round tie between Kettering Town and Leeds at around 3.55pm.
The third round draw sees all the lower league and non-league sides hoping to earn a glamour tie against some of the Premiership heavyweights.
There will definitely be at least three non-league sides in the draw this season.
