Sheffield United fans will need to take note of ball number 11 when the draw for the FA Cup Second Round takes place this afternoon at 4.10PM on ITV.

Sheffield United made a safe passage into the second round after beating Colchester United by three goals top two - Chris Porter's late penalty sent Sheffield United through to the second round of the FA Cup with a 3-2 win, despite a stirring second-half comeback by Colchester. The Blades struck twice in the space of two early first-half minutes.Harry Maguire headed Tony McMahon's free-kick into the far corner of the net, in the 10th minute and the Blades doubled their lead when Porter closed down Magnus Okuonghae's attempted pass and delivered a cross-shot which flicked in off Tom Eastman, despite keeper Sam Walker's attempts to keep it out. Matt Hill struck the crossbar for the visitors and Sheffield United were the better side in the first half.But Colchester reduced the deficit three minutes after the break when Macauley Bonne headed in after Clinton Morrison had flicked on Luke Garbutt's delivery. And Garbutt drove in a superb low shot from 25 yards from Brian Wilson's throw to equalise just after the hour. But after Okuonghae was adjudged to have handled Maguire's header in the area, Porter netted from the spot to send the Blades through.

The draw will be made by Tore Andre Flo; brother of former Sheffield United striker Jostein who played for Chelsea and Glasgow Rangers and Perry Groves who featured for Arsenal and yesterday's opponents Colchester United. Thedraw will take place at 4.10PM following the commencment of the live ITV fixture between Bishop's Stortford and Northampton Town.
