Leicester have been drawn at home to play Crystal Palace in the third round of this year’s F.A. Cup. The tie is scheduled for the 3rd/4th January early next year.

The last time the two sides met in the competition was way back in the 97/98 season when a Bruce Dyer hat-trick gave Palace a comfortable win against the Foxes.

Last season a last gasp Barry Hayles goal was enough for Leicester to snatch a 1-0 win at the Walkers against the Eagles.
