Kettering eye United clash

Published Add your comment

Non-league Kettering could be set for a dream trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the third round should they manage to negotiate their second round replay with Leeds.

One of Oxford or Barrow will definitely get the chance to claim a Premier League scalp, with the winner of their replay set for a trip to Sunderland's Stadium of Light, while Blue Square Premier outfit York will travel to Stoke.

Conference South side Staines Town, who forced a replay with Millwall at Wheatsheaf Park, have the incentive of a home tie with Derby.

The 2008 finalists Chelsea and Portsmouth have both been drawn at home against Watford and Coventry respectively.

In other ties pitting Premier League sides against Football League outfits Manchester City will return to Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium, Tottenham host Peterborough, Bolton are at home to Lincoln, Fulham face Swindon, Wolves will meet either Tranmere or Aldershot and Birmingham are away to Nottingham Forest.
