YORK City Knights have been drawn at home to Super League giants Wigan Warriors in the third round of the Betfred Challenge Cup.

The Knights have done it the hard way so far, pitted away to fellow Championship top-six hopefuls Sheffield Eagles and London Broncos in the first two rounds - and the task is not going to get any easier.

Wigan, who have won the Challenge Cup 19 times in their 148-year history, will visit the LNER Community Stadium over the weekend of April 10 and 11.

Two third round ties will be broadcast by the BBC on Saturday, April 10.

York are one of four Championship sides remaining in the competition - and as such, also have a chance of making it to Wembley in the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup.

James Ford's men will face Featherstone Rovers, Swinton Lions or Widnes Vikings in the semi-finals, the draw for which will be made in May.

The Challenge Cup draw in full is as follows.

York City Knights v Wigan Warriors, Swinton Lions v Warrington Wolves, Hull Kingston Rovers v Castleford Tigers, Catalans Dragons v Wakefield Trinity, Featherstone Rovers v Hull FC, St Helens v Leeds Rhinos, Leigh Centurions v Huddersfield Giants, Salford Red Devils v Widnes Vikings.
