Preston North End have been drawn at home to Norwich City in the third round of the FA Cup.

The Lilywhites will host the Canaries at Deepdale on the weekend of January 3/4.

It is the first time the two sides have been paired together in the FA Cup although they did meet four times in the League Cup in the 1980s.

The tie should mean a return to Deepdale for Norwich goalkeeper Declan Rudd who spent a season-and-a-half on loan with North End.

North End beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0 with a Paul Huntington goal on Saturday to put themselves into the hat for the third round draw.

Norwich, relegated from the Premier League in May, are currently in ninth place in the Championship.
