GARY Rowett's Burton Albion will travel to Championship side Bournemouth in the third round of the FA Cup – if they can overcome Fleetwood Town in the replay on Tuesday week.

But it could have been so much better for the Brewers, who were left in the hat with Derby County and Chelsea as well as the Cherries.

However, the Rams were handed a top home draw against Chelsea, with Albion/Fleetood drawn out last – and contemplating a trip to Yorkshire at the start of January.

FA CUP THIRD ROUND DRAW:

Bournemouth v Fleetwood or Burton; Derby v Chelsea; Ipswich v Preston; Grimsby v Huddersfield; Birmingham v Bristol Rovers or Crawley; Arsenal v Tottenham; Brighton v Reading; Everton v QPR; Blackburn v Manchester City; Bolton v Blackpool; Sunderland v Carlisle; Macclesfield v Sheffield Wednesday; Aston Villa v Sheffield United; Norwich v Fulham; Port Vale v Plymouth; Manchester United v Swansea; Charlton v Wrexham or Oxford; Wigan v MK Dons; Rochdale v Leeds; Newcastle v Cardiff; Southampton v Burnley; Stoke v Leicester; Doncaster v Stevenage; Kidderminster v Peterborough; West Brom v Crystal Palace; Middlesbrough v Hull; Southend v Millwall; Bristol City v Watford; Nottingham Forest v West Ham; Liverpool v Oldham or Mansfield; Yeovil v Leyton Orient; Barnsley v Hartlepool or Coventry.

Ties will be played over the weekend of January 4/5.
