ALBION will discover their opponent in this season's Emirates FA Cup tonight.

The draw for the third round takes place tonight, and the round is the first of the tournament that will include Premier League and Championship sides.

The Seagulls will be ball number six in the draw.

Last season Albion made it to the fifth round of the competition beating Newport County on penalties and Blackpool, before being knocked out by Leicester City.

There are still five non-league sides left in the competition, including Chesterfield, Yeovil Town and Kidderminster.

The other two are fifth tier Boreham Wood and sixth tier St Albans City, who play each other tonight for a spot in the next round.

The draw will be shown live on ITV4 as part of their coverage of the second-round tie between Boreham Wood and St Albans City at 7pm.

Third round ties will take place on the weekend of January 7-10.
