Leeds, Leeds, Leeds
The prize for getting past League 2 Morecambe is a home tie with Leeds, Leeds, Leeds in the third round.
Younger visitors may wonder what all the fuss is about but until recent times, Leeds were a club who were one of Newcastle’s biggest rivals after the mackems.
Just down the road, Newcastle would always take a big following to Elland Road and to be fair they would bring plenty up here.
On the pitch it is a golden chance for Newcastle to reach the heady heights of round four and on the terraces it should be a decent atmosphere as Leeds will make a day of it.
Ties are scheduled for week commencing Monday 23rd September so unless TV dictate otherwise, we should face them on Wednesday 25th September, sandwiched between Hull at home and Everton away.
