The Saddlers are in the Third Round draw for only the third time in ten years but will know despite being in the draw we will have a very tough task of defeating Sunderland in the replay next Tuesday night.

We can still feel the romance of the cup draw which sees the forty four teams from the top two divisions enter the frame – whilst dream trips to Anfield, Etihad or Stamford Bridge is on offer you can more or less expect us to draw someone like Bolton away.

The draw for the third round of the Emirates FA Cup will take place at Stamford Bridge on Monday evening and will be broadcast live on BBC One from 7.30pm.

The third round is scheduled to take place over the weekend of Saturday 5 January 2019.
