The draw for the third round of the FA Cup has paired Brighton with Hull City and Whitehawk – potentially – with Everton.

One of the big occasions of the football calendar was staged in Cardiff and shown live on BBC2 and left the two Sussex clubs with mixed fortunes.

Whitehawk will have a huge payday at Goodison Park if they can get past Dagenham and Redbridge in a replay next week.

The sides drew 1-1 at Dagenham on Sunday, with a late goal keeping alive the hopes of the National League South side.

Brighton, currently top of the Championship, will visit Hull, who are fourth in the same division.

The games will be played on the weekend of January 8-11, with a number of games expected to be moved from the Saturday for TV purposes.
