Police described last week's M23 derby as 'challenging' to police, now the teams are set to meet again in January.

Brighton & Hove Albion will host Crystal Palace in the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The draw for the next stage of the historic competition was made this evening ( 4 December 2017) at Slough Town’s Arbour Park, before their televised second round tie against Rochdale.

Chris Hughton's men will come up against the Eagles for the second time in recent succession after hosting Roy Hodgson's men at the Amex Stadium last Tuesday evening. 

The third round tie will take place across the weekend of 5th-8th January 2018 - a date for the tie, ticket details and all other information will be confirmed in due course.

Meanwhile, incidents around the Brighton v Crystal Palace match on Tuesday evening (November 28) have been described as the 'most challenging football-related disorder that I have ever experienced' by the man who led the policing operation for the game.
Last week, Chief Inspector Simon Nelson said: "I have been involved in football policing at all levels and have been a match commander for Albion matches for 12 years, but I have never come across such concerted attempts to cause disorder and engage in violent behaviour.

There will now be questions over policing plans now the teams are set to meet again so soon after incidents of masked gangs over running the turnstiles and Bruno's mural being defaced in the city centre.

Three men have been charged with public disorder offences and  a breach of a match ban.
