Swansea City have been chosen out of the hat as Leicester City’s opponents in the third round of this year’s FA Cup.

The tie will take place at the Walkers Stadium on the weekend of January 2nd 2010, after the two Championship sides were pitted together earlier this evening.

Fans of both clubs will generally be disappointed with the draw, as hopes of a Premier League tie for one side will be dashed early in the competition.

Foxes fans will be hoping for some of the FA Cup’s famous magic to help them along the way this year, in a competition that has thrown up many an exciting match for City in recent seasons.

Leicester were knocked out of the competition in the third round last year by Crystal Palace after a replay, following a dismal display at Selhurt Park.
