As I write this the Black Cats are one up at home to Carlisle in their 3rd round game and if they do win through *, and so do we, then it will be the first time that Harriers have played a Premier League side since 2004 when we bowed out to the once mighty Wolves.
The 4th round will be played on the weekend of January 25th ironically on the day that we would have played Macclesfield. Yesterday they drew at home to Sheffield Wednesday and face a replay on the same evening that we'll be in Peterborough. If they win their game then they'll be facing Rochdale away.
The full draw is as follows:
Sunderland v Kidderminster Harriers or Peterborough Utd Bolton Wanderers v Cardiff City Southampton v Yeovil Huddersfield v Charlton or Oxford Utd Port Vale or Plymouth Argyle v Brighton & Hove Albion Nottingham Forest v Ipswich or Preston NE Southend Utd v Hull City Rochdale v Macclesfield or Sheffield Wednesday Arsenal v Coventry City Stevenage v Everton Wigan Athletic or MK Dons v Crystal Palace Derby County or Chelsea v Stoke City Blackburn Rovers or Man City v Bristol City or Watford Bournemouth or Burton Albion v Liverpool or Oldham Athletic Birmingham City or Bristol Rovers or Crawley Town v Man United or Swansea City Sheffield United v Norwich or Fulham* Sunderland beat Carlisle 3-1 to give ourselves something to aim for.
