- Credit: PA
Norwich City must travel to League One promotion hopefuls Preston North End in the FA Cup third round.
The Canaries were the penultimate tie in Monday evening's draw as the Premier League and Championship clubs entered the world famous cup competition.
Neil Adams' squad will travel to Deepdale to face the two-time former winners in the third round, with ties scheduled to be played between January 3 and January 6.
Simon Grayson's Lilywhites are currently fourth in League One, two points behind Bristol City, after reaching last season's play-offs, where City's back-up keeper Declan Rudd made 46 league appearances for North End during a season-long loan stint.
Preston beat non-league Havant and Waterlooville 3-0 in this season's first round before booking their place in Monday's draw with a 1-0 second round home win over City's League Cup conquerors Shrewsbury.

'We would have preferred a home tie and it will be a tough game, but we're confident of getting a result,' Adams told the club's official site. 'Preston will see it as a chance to topple a Championship side, but we'll take the game seriously because we'd like to go as far as we can in the FA Cup.'
