It’s that time of year again that all players and supporters thoughts are on Wembley and the long road to get there in the FA Cup. The draw for this seasons 3rd round will take place this weekend live on ITV at 2.40pm.
Derby County will be ball 15 and everyone hopes for a favourable draw when Patrice Muamba and Ledley King have the honour of drawing out the balls.
We then have the short wait until the weekend of the 5th and 6th of January 2013 before battle commences.
Other balls to look out for, Nottingham Forest have number 30 and an all Derbyshire tie may be on the cards if ball number 52 is draw with the Rams. Number 52 is of course Alfreton Town or Leyton Orient.
