FA Cup Third Round draw throws up Wearside visit...
United have been drawn away to Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the FA Cup Third Round.
All Third Round ties will be played on the weekend of January 3/4 2015.
Confirmation of the date and ticket details will be released in due course.
It will be the first meeting for just over eight years between the two sides and a repeat of the 1973 final, in which Sunderland caused one of the competition's most famous upsets.
Our last visit to the Stadium of Light came on Boxing Day 2006 when Sunderland were 2-0 winners, while our last victory on Wearside came exactly two years earlier in a 3-2 win.
The two sides met in the 1967 FA Cup, with two Fifth Round replays being needed before United were able to progress with a 2-1 win at Elland Road.
