Preston North End have been drawn away against Newcastle United in the fourth round of the League Cup.

The trip to St James’ Park is PNE’s reward for their 3-2 extra-time win over Bournemouth on Tuesday night.

It means that North End and the Magpies will meet twice in a few days, with the cup game scheduled for the week beginning October 24 – the sides play in the Championship at Deepdale on Saturday, October 29.

A Simon Makienok hat-trick gave PNE their victory against Bournemouth at Dean Court, the Danish striker scoring the winner in the second half of extra-time.

The fourth round draw was made on Wednesday night, with Manchester United drawn at home to rivals Manchester City, with West Ham hosting Chelsea in an all-London clash.

Liverpool will face Tottneham at Anfield, with Arsenal at home to Reading.
