Stoke City number 36 for Sunday's draw

THE ROAD to Wembley begins again on Sunday afternoon . . . as Stoke City are entered into the draw for the FA Cup with Budweiser Third Round.

The Potters have been handed the number 36 ball as clubs from the Barclays Premier League and npower Championship join a host of lower league and non-league teams to have already battled their way through the earlier stages.

Second Round fixtures will be played out this weekend with possible opponents from those games including MK Dons or AFC Wimbledon (number 62), Sheffield United or Port Vale (47) and Harrogate Town or Hastings United (60).

Tony Pulis' men could of course draw another team entering at this stage, with holders Chelsea (13), Middlesbrough (26) and Watford (40) all potential ties as well.
