FA Cup 3rd round draw

17:18 , Luke Baker

Welcome to The Independent’s coverage of the 2022/23 FA Cup 3rd round draw, where non-league sides can face Premier League teams and the prospect of giant-killings become reality.

This evening will see the all-important draw as the 44 teams from the top two tiers, and the 20 sides who have come through the 2nd round, find out their fates for the first weekend in January.

Anfield - home of reigning FA Cup holders Liverpool - will host the draw and the Reds are joined in the hat by footballing giants Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and the team they beat on penalties in last season’s final, Chelsea.

At the other end of the spectrum, three non-league sides - Wrexham, Chesterfield and Boreham Wood - have guaranteed their spot in the third round after victories this weekend, while a fourth National League outfit, Dagenham & Redbridge, are also in the draw ahead of their replay with League Two Gillingham.

FA Cup success to provide striker for Accrington

18:51 , Jack Rathborn

Accrington boss John Coleman has revealed how FA Cup progress will enable the club to buy a striker.

“That win alone should enable me to bring a striker in,” said Coleman.

“One thing you can say about Andy [chairman Andy Holt] is that he’s a realist. He knows what we need.

“We don’t want to break our club but we need to strengthen in certain areas.

“He’s good with that and I think we will have the opportunity to bring another player in.”
