Championship leaders Leigh will scent another upset after being drawn away to Super League bottom club Wakefield in the sixth round of the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup.

Paul Rowley’s side twice came from behind to claim a 22-18 victory over high-flying Salford at the weekend and will travel to a side who have won just two of their 10 league games this season.

Holders and current Super League leaders Leeds Rhinos will be at home to Huddersfield Giants, while last year’s beaten finalists Castleford face the short journey to Hull FC.

York, the only third-tier team left in the competition after their weekend win over amateur side Leigh Miners Rangers, face the daunting prospect of a trip to 12-times winners St Helens.

Warrington must travel to Championship side Dewsbury, Wigan face Hull KR, Widnes are at home to Championship Batley Bulldogs and Featherstone Rovers face a trip to France to take on Catalans Dragons.
