Fulham have been handed a trip to fellow Championship side Cardiff City in the draw for the third round of the FA Cup that has been made this evening.

The Bluebirds currently occupy one of the three relegation spots in the league, sitting in 22nd place with nineteen points from nineteen games. The Welsh side claimed a creditable point after holding high-flying Brighton and Hove Albion to a goalless draw at the weekend under Neil Warnock, having sacked former Fulham midfielder Paul Trollope in in October.

The two sides played out on an entertaining 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage in September. The Cottagers went in front through teenager Ryan Sessegnon’s first goal for the club but needed a late strike from Kevin McDonald to rescue a point after Joe Ralls and Anthony Pilkington had put City ahead. The FA Cup tie will offer a reunion with their former sides for Welsh international Jazz Richards and Scott Malone after the full backs swapped clubs before the start of the season.

The third round tie will be played at the Cardiff City stadium between Friday 6 and Monday 9 January.
