LUFC Warnock hoping for a home draw

Neil Warnock was refusing to get carried away following Leeds victory over Southampton in the Capital One League Cup.

Leeds booked their place in the quarter finals for the first time since 1996 with a 3-0 win over their Premier League opposition.

Warnock has constantly reminded the media that he has promised his daughter that he would to try to take Leeds all the way to Wembley this season and he is hoping for another home draw, having been drawn at home in all four rounds in this seasons competition.

Speaking on LUTV, Warnock said, "We will just do our best. It would be nice to get another home tie but we will have to wait and see what crops up."

Leeds are one of only three teams remaining in the competition from outside the Premier League and the draw could throw up a number of mouth-watering ties.

Near neighbours, Bradford City from League Two dispensed of Premier League Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium on penalties.

Fellow championship side Middlesbrough also enjoyed victory over Premier League opposition, beating local neighbours Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light.

Leeds have travelled to Arsenal in the past two seasons in the FA Cup and they are also in the final eight after coming back from four down to beat Reading 7-5 at the Madejski.

Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are all in fourth round action tonight and have all come up against Leeds in cup competitions in recent seasons.

Tottenham face Norwich City at Carrow Road this evening and a win for Norwich would see former Leeds players Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson and Robert Snodgrass come up against their old club.

Chelsea face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge and a win for Chelsea could throw up a first game against the West London club for Ken Bates since he took over at Leeds in 2005 ( I am sure we will still be waiting for the takeover).

Struggling Premier League sides Aston Villa and Swansea City are the other two options when the draw is made this evening.
