Leeds face tricky trip in Cup

Leeds face tricky trip in Cup

Leeds United have been drawn against fellow League One side Oldham Athletic away in the FA Cup first round sponsored by E.ON.

The Latics are currently ninth in League One and have lost only one of their last seven games.

When the two clubs met in the league at Boundary Park last season the game finished 1-1, Luciano Becchio cancelling out a goal by Lee Hughes.

They are yet to meet this season, Leeds will now visit them twice in less than a month, they face a league fixture their on Tuesday December 1st.

Oldham have been something of a bogey side to Leeds over the years with the Whites only winning three times in their previous twenty one encounters at Boundary Park.

They have only ever met once before in the FA Cup, a fourth round clash at Elland Road in 1995, Leeds won 3-2 thanks to goals from David White, Carlton Palmer and Phil Masinga.
