Leeds have drawn Blackburn Rovers at Elland Road in the Third Round of the EFL Cup after their victory over Luton on Tuesday.
The draw took place on Wednesday evening after the conclusion of Accrington Stanley vs Burnley, and Leeds will be satisfied with the draw.
In the game preceding the draw Accrington pulled off the shock of the round by beating Premier League side Burnley 1-0 in extra-time to take the Lancashire bragging rights.
Leeds earned their spot in the hat with a 1-0 win over Luton, thanks to a spectacular striker from debutant Tyler Denton.
Denton, 20, sent fans into raptures on Twitter when he scored his shot with the outside of his left foot into the top corner.
The young left-back was included in the line-up for the first time as Garry Monk opted to make 11 changes from their win over Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend.
After the Luton clash, Monk praised his side, claiming they were “worthy winners” despite the stats suggesting the game was very evenly balanced.
Elsewhere in the draw, Gillingham will have a memorable trip to Tottenham and Northampton will host Manchester United.
Arguably the biggest games of the third round will be the all Premier League clashes of Swansea vs Manchester City and Leicester vs Chelsea.
