LEEDS United boss Simon Grayson is refusing to get carried away by the prospect of a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in round three of the FA Cup.

United have the small matter of a replay against Kettering Town at Elland Road next Tuesday – and a trip to Oldham Athletic in Coca-Cola League One tonight.

The Whites manager insists his league leaders will not be distracted by the chance of a clash with their old trans-Pennine rivals.

“It’s a potential tie, that’s all it is at this stage,” said Grayson.

“Everyone knows the rivalry between us and them, and I’m sure the fans will be delighted. But we have a lot to do before then on all fronts. We have to be professional. We can’t take our eye off the ball.”

There could be changes to the United line-up tonight after Grayson was forced to shuffle his squad for Sunday’s round two tie at Rockingham Road.

Loan pair Max Gradel and Sam Vokes both missed out as they were not granted permission to play, while Richard Naylor, Bradley Johnson and Ben Parker were also injured.

New arrivals Hogan Ephraim and David Martin could also come into the equation for the Boundary Park visit.

Luciano Becchio and Jason Crowe are also available to the United boss after returning to the squad at Kettering.
