Bramall Lane
Bramall Lane

Sheff Utd Await

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 04/12/2011

GRIMSBY will face League One side Sheffield United at Bramall Lane provided they can get past Salisbury in the Second Round replay. Town and the Blades met regularly in the 1990s and the two clubs have played 63 times in the past. In the FA Cup they last met in 1980 when Grimsby won 2-0 at Blundell Park.

With not far between Grimsby and Sheffield, a history of rivalry between the clubs, and good transport links, it's likely there will be a big crowd if the game were to go ahead. But first of all Grimsby have to overcome Salisbury.

Grimsby have been drawn away twice and managed draws in both their games to earn the club a replay. If they beat Salisbury and manage at least a draw in Sheffield then another two games would provide a welcome boost to the club's finances.

Other highlights of the draw were Man City v Man Utd, Arsenal v Leeds and Everton v Tamworth.

Middlesbrough v Shrewsbury
Nottingham Forest v Leicester City
Manchester City v Manchester United
Dagenham & Redbridge/Walsall v Millwall
Crawley v Bristol City
Doncaster v Sutton Utd/Notts County
Bristol Rovers v Aston Villa
Tottenham v Cheltenham Town
Sheffield Wednesday v West Ham
Milton Keynes Dons v QPR
Hull City v Ipswich Town
Coventry v Southampton
Brighton v Wrexham
Fulham v Charlton Athletic
Birmingham v Wolves
Norwich v Burnley
Arsenal v Leeds United
Derby v Crystal Palace
Fleetwood/Yeovil v Blackpool
Swindon v Wigan
Barnsley v Swansea
Chelmsford/Macclesfield v Bolton
Newcastle v Blackburn
Everton v Tamworth
Sheffield United v Salisbury City/Grimsby
Liverpool v Southend/Oldham
Gillingham v Stoke
Chelsea v Portsmouth
Watford v Bradford
Peterborough v Sunderland
West Brom v Cardiff
Reading v Stevenage

Ties to be played on the first Saturday in January.
