FC Halifax Town will play Championship side Brentford away in the third round of the FA Cup if they get past Eastleigh in their second round replay.

Town drew 3-3 at Eastleigh on Saturday, and the two teams will battle it out for a place in the third round at The Shay on December 13.

If Town win that game, their third round tie will take place on the weekend of January 7 and 8.

Halifax last reached the third round of the FA Cup in 1989 when they lost to Kettering after a replay.
