Sheffield United drawn against League One rivals in FA Cup

Sheffield United have been drawn away at Bolton Wanderers in the second round of the FA Cup.

The tie is one of the biggest of the round, with the two clubs both having won four FA Cups.

The fixture will take place at Bolton’s Macron Stadium between 2-4 December and promises to be a tight clash, with both sides currently competing at the top of League One.

United are currently in fourth place, just three points behind second-placed Bolton.

They also have a game in hand on the Lancashire club, meaning that the two clubs could have nothing separating them after three months of the League One season.

The Blades qualified for the second round with a stunning 6-0 win over League Two Leyton Orient at Bramall Lane, with 19-year-old loanee Harry Chapman scoring a hat trick.

Bolton won 1-0 over another League Two side, Grimsby Town, at the Macron Stadium.

Sheffield United started the season slowly under new boss Chris Wilder, but have turned their fortunes around and are currently on a 11 game unbeaten run in the league.
