It promises to be a busy weekend of action in the competition, with sides from the top two tiers of English football entering the fray at the third round stage, but with so many matches it can be hard to keep track of when teams are playing, and how you can watch along from home.

Thankfully, we’ve gathered all the information you need to ensure that you won’t miss a minute of Town’s cup exploits.

When is kick-off?

The game will be played at the People’s Pension Stadium, and will begin at 1.30pm on Sunday January 10th.

How can I watch it?

The match will be available to watch on BBC One.

Coverage starts at 1.15pm, and viewers can also follow the action on the BBC iPlayer.

What’s on offer for the winners?

As well as a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup, the winners of the clash will secure a prize of £61,500.

It’s not all bad news for the losers, however, with teams who get knocked out still pocketing £20,500.

What does the recent head-to-head record look like?

Crawley have never played Leeds in a competitive fixture, with the Reds having only reached the EFL for the first time in their history in 2011.

Town haven’t made it past the third round of the FA Cup since 2012, when they were eventually knocked out in the fifth stage of the competition by Stoke City.
