Leeds drawn away to Newport in the next round of the cup but the match will be played at ER due to the pitch being relaid at Newport.

Good time for them to re-lay the pitch. Every club should follow their example.

What on earth were they doing in the Northern half of the draw??? Baffles me as the likes of Burton, Birmingham and Wolves were in the Southern half and they're much nearer. Someone obviously wasn't very good at geography at school.

The answer is West ham And Newport who agree are both in the southern section could not play any tie at home newport as we know have pitch problems West hams Stadium is been used for something else both were excluded from a home tie so in the event of both teams been drawn to play each other newport were moved into the northern section.(hope this makes it clear)
