AFC Fylde will face Premier League opposition in the third round of the FA Cup in a money-spinning tie against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane

The Blades will host National League promotion hopefuls AFC Fylde as they enter the competition with the tie set to be played on the weekend of January 4.

And Sheffield United fans were quick to congratulate the Coasters on the draw, which will provide the club with a cash injection.

The club have already pocketed £54,000 after winning in the second round and could net £135,000 if they pull off a miracle and beat the Blades whilst also receiving 45% of net gate receipts.
