Discover who Blues will face in third round

Pompey will discover their next Emirates FA Cup opponents when the third round draw takes place tonight.

It will be screened live on BBC2 from 7pm and the Blues are number 48.

Paul Cook’s side progressed with a 1-0 home victory over Accrington on Saturday, courtesy of Adam McGurk’s first half strike.

All the Premier League and Championship sides enter at this stage of the competition, including current cup holders Arsenal.

There are also three non-league sides still involved, although only Eastleigh are certain of their place in the third round, with Salford and Whitehawk facing replays.

Wales manager Chris Coleman and Welsh rugby union international Dan Biggar will draw the sides at the Sport Wales National Centre in Cardiff.

Ties will be played on the weekend of January 8-11.
