The 3rd round draw for the FA Youth Cup has been made.

Rovers' Under-18s have been handed a home draw in this season's FA Youth Cup.

The young Rovers will face Leicester City at Ewood Park in the 3rd round of the competition.

Terry McPhillips' side went all the way to the final last season where they lost over two legs to Chelsea so they'll be looking to go one better this term to lift the trophy.

But against Leicester City it certainly won't be easy as the Foxes have a highly-rated youth set-up and defeated Rovers at the fourth round stage just two years ago winning 3-1 at the Walkers Stadium.

A date for the tie will be confirmed in due course, all ties have to be completed by December 15th.
