The FA Cup third round draw is being held this evening and there are still six non-league teams that Norwich City could be facing in January.

Beyond the 44 Premier League and Championship teams joining the world’s oldest club competition, there are a further 20 teams from lower levels who will play in the third round.

Five second round ties have gone to a replay and the final tie is being played tonight, when National League North side Guiseley host League One club Fleetwood at 8pm, following the draw.

The lowest ranked team going into the hat is Southport, who sit 19th in National League North, but they still have a replay against Tranmere to overcome.

Woking are the only other team from step two of non-league still in the competition, having caused an upset yesterday when they won 1-0 at Swindon. The Cards currently sit second in National League South.

Barnet are the only National League side already through, having beaten Stockport 1-0 yesterday, but Wrexham and Solihull Moors still have hope as they face replays against Newport and Blackpool respectively.

The draw is being made live on BBC One from 7.30pm this evening, with former FA Cup winners Paul Ince and Ruud Gullit conducting the draw.

Norwich will be ball number 28 and the ties are due to be played on the weekend of January 4-6, with the winners claiming £135,500 after prize money was doubled for this season.
