Cup Numbers Announced

7 December 2015

A comprehensive list of the third round draw.

Doncaster Rovers will be ball number 52 in the FA Cup Third round draw which will be screened live on BBC2 and on bbc.co.uk/sport from 7pm tonight.

A potentially lucrative tie awaits Darren Ferguson’s men who came from a goal down at League 2 Cambridge United on Sunday to win 3-1 thanks to Conor Grant’s double either side of Mitchell Lund’s first senior goal.

It is Doncaster’s ninth involvement in the third round in the last eleven years, though they haven’t been paired with top flight opposition since meeting Wolves in 2010-11.

In the hat for the last 64 teams are Premier League leaders Leicester City (22), local rivals Rotherham United (34), Sheffield Wednesday (35) and Sheffield United (61). Non league outfits Eastleigh (49), Grimsby Town (53), Salford City (62) and Whitehawk (63) also remain.
