Notts draw Middlesbrough

Last updated : 07 December 2003 By Richard Brown

The tie will be, traditionally, played over the first weekend of January 2004 and will take place at the Riverside Stadium.

County reached the Third Round after comprehensive 7-2 and 2-1 victories over Shildon and Gravesend & Northfleet in the First and Second rounds, respectively.

The game may not be as mouth-watering as the Magpies’ Third Round Carling Cup tie with
Chelsea, but at least we are guaranteed the security of not playing a nothing-tie, in terms of gate receipts, away at Telford.

The scheduling of this match coincides with County’s away fixture with Peterborough United on the 3rd – the clash will therefore be postponed to a further date.
