Grant McCann celebrates his winning goal against Leicester in February, 2013.

Top flight Leicester will be hot favourites to beat Fleetwood of League One in their third round replay on January 16. The sides drew 0-0 at Fleetwood on Saturday.

Posh have never played Leicester or Fleetwood in the FA Cup. They have met Leicester twice in the League Cup and lost both times, in a two-legged tie in 1992 and after a replay in 1965.

But Posh won the last meeting between the sides, a Championship fixture at London Road in 2013 when current manager Grant McCann scored an 88th minute winning goal in a 2-1 victory.
