Barnet’s reward for reaching the FA Cup third round for the first time in 10 years is a trip to Championship side Sheffield United.

Dan Sparkes’ early header was enough to secure a 1-0 victory over Stockport County as the Bees ended a wait that dated back to 2008 to advance beyond the second round.

The Blades are currently sixth in the second tier, five points off an automatic promotion place.

The tie will take place at Bramall Lane on the weekend of Saturday, January 5.
