Wrexham AFC will host 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup if they get past Newport County.

The Reds drew 0-0 against League Two Newport in Saturday's second round tie at The Racecourse.

The replay is scheduled for Tuesday December 11 at Rodney Parade.

Should they progress, Wrexham will take on Leicester at The Racecourse in the third round which takes place over the weekend of Saturday January 5, 2019.

The Foxes famously won the Premier League back in the 2015/16 season - after being 5,000-1 outsiders for the title.

Many of the club's title-winning players remain at the club, including England striker Jamie Vardy, and Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Winning clubs will receive £135,500 after The FA doubled the prize fund at the beginning of the season.

Wrexham, who host Eastleigh on Saturday before returning to FA Cup action next week in south Wales, are looking for their fourth manager of the year after Sam Ricketts was today confirmed as the new Shrewsbury Town boss.

With speculation mounting that the League One Shrews were closing in on a move to make Ricketts their new boss, he was told not to attend the first meeting with Newport.

Graham Barrow, brought in as Ricketts’ assistant in July, took charge along with coaches Jussi Jaaskelainen and Carl Darlington.

The process to appoint Ricketts’ successor is already underway and former Chester, Wigan and Rochdale boss Barrow will take charge of the first team on an interim basis.
