Preston North End have been drawn at home to fellow League One club Sheffield United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

It means that the sides will meet twice in the space of a fortnight, with North End travelling to Bramall Lane on Saturday to take on the Blades in the league.

The FA Cup tie will take place at Deepdale on the weekend of January 24/25.

United were semi-finalists in the FA Cup last season, beaten 5-3 by Hull City at Wembley.

This season they have reached the last four of the Capital One Cup.

Earlier in the campaign, North End drew 1-1 with Nigel Clough’s men at Deepdale, Andy Little on target for the Lilywhites.
