Blackpool will welcome Ipswich Town to Bloomfield Road in the 3rd round of the FA Cup.

The draw took place moments ago following the Kettering vs Leeds match live on ITV, which ended all square at 1-1.

The fixture will be played over the weekend of January 2/3 but is unlikely to attract television interest.

‘Pool have failed to progress past the 3rd round since 2007 – losing away to Torquay and Barnsley in both of the last two campaigns.

So it was perhaps always likely that the draw would pan out this way, with The Seasiders seemingly always getting duff ties!

Rest of the draw:
Tottenham v Peterborough

Brentford v Doncaster

Middlesbrough v Man City

Stoke v York

Notts County v Forest Green

Huddersfield v West Brom

Sheff Utd v QPR

MK Dons v Burnley

Chelsea v Watford

Nott’m Forest v Birmingham

Preston v Colchester

West Ham v Arsenal

Aston Villa v Blackburn

Portsmouth v Coventry

Sunderland v Oxford or Barrow

Wigan v Hull

Everton v Carlisle

Sheff Wed v Crystal Palace

Tranmere or Aldershot v Wolves

Blackpool v Ipswich

Fulham v Swindon

Stockport or Torquay v Brighton

Scunthorpe v Barnsley

Southampton v Rotherham or Luton

Bristol City v Cardiff

Reading v Liverpool

Staines or Millwall v Derby

Plymouth v Newcastle

Leicester v Swansea

Bolton v Lincoln

Accrington or Barnet v Gillingham

Man Utd v Kettering or Leeds

  • A nice wee surprise there lads. I think a cracker of a game is on the cards as we are finally getting into gear……4-2 to Town is my bold forecast….
