History

When the two clubs met on their first ever occasion last month, Ian Roper gave the Poppies a shock lead before Jermaine Beckford equalised for the Whites.

Kettering have already enjoyed a bit of giant killing in the cup this season when they beat League One Hartlepool 1-0 away in the first round.

In Kettering`s history they have played 42 games at home in the FA Cup, they have won 9, drawn 12 and lost 21.

Last season they enjoyed a good run reaching the fourth round before losing at home 4-2 against Premiership side Fulham.

They also enjoyed beating league opposition twice with replay wins over Lincoln City and Notts County.

The furthest they have ever gone in the competition has been the fourth round twice.

As well as last season, they also did it in 1988/89 when they eventually lost 2-1 at Charlton Athletic.

Leeds United have won the FA Cup on one occasion in 1972 and been beaten finalists on three occasions against Liverpool (1965), Chelsea (1970) and Sunderland (1973).

The Whites played their first ever first round fixture in 2007 when they lost in a replay against Hereford 1-0 at home.

It`s the third year in a row that Leeds have had to enter the competition at the first round stage.

Last season Leeds were beaten in the FA Cup for the first time in their history by a non league side when Blue Square Premiership club Histon Town beat them 1-0.

The Whites will be hoping to win their first ever second round tie in the FA Cup.
