Notts County drawn away to Brentford in FA Cup third round

Joe Jones

Notts County have been drawn away at Brentford in the third round of the FA Cup.

The draw was made on Monday evening, with Magpies fans hoping to get a plum tie against a Premier League giant.

Instead, Notts will be heading to Griffin Park to face the Bees, who currently sit 11th in the Championship table.

There is a possibility that Kevin Nolan's side could come up against former Notts man Alan Judge, although he has been sidelined since last year and, although he is stepping up his rehabilitation from a broken leg, there is no timeframe on his return yet.

The Magpies overcame League One side Bristol Rovers and National League South outfit Oxford City to make it this far.

Ties will take place between 5 and 7 January 2018.

Awful tie. An away day against an unfashionable side with a lower-league profile, poor support and a tiny stadium but who are doing very well in the Championship and are going to give us a very tough game. And what makes it worse is that them over the bridge have Arsenal at the City Ground.
