The FA Cup has been not the happiest of hunting grounds for Leeds United.
The side have seen some historic wins in the years gone by; but lately they have seen several underwhelming results and knock outs thst leave much to be desired.
Now a Premier League team and with heavy summer investment; Leeds will look to see if their cup hoodoo can be resolved with an away game at Crawley Town.
This will be the first time the clubs have faced off and Marcelo Bielsa is said to have a heavily rotated team as focus remains with Premier League survival and the fans could finally get to see the likes of Sam Greenwood and Jack Jenkins given bailable first team minutes.
Crawley Town come into the third round tie having not lost in an incredible 10 games and sit ninth place in League Two.
Crawley Town DWDWW
Leeds have not stepped past the third round of the cup in the last four years; a test at Crawley can be the first chance to get in a cup run.
Prediction: Crawley 1 Leeds 3
