FA Cup fourth round draw: Home tie for Blades

FA Cup fourth round draw

FA Cup fourth round draw

Sheffield United will entertain either Norwich City or Fulham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Nigel Clough’s side, languishing in the lower reaches of League One, dumped out Premier League Aston Villa yesterday thanks to goals either side of half-time from Jamie Murphy and Ryan Flynn.

It is the first time United have been handed a home tie in the tournament this season. As well as Villa, Clough’s men have also triumphed at Colchester United and Cambridge United.

Sheffield Wednesday will travel to Rochdale in the last 32 of the competition if they beat Macclesfield in a replay later this month. The managerless Owls were held to a 1-1 draw at Moss Rose despite taking a first half lead through captain Reda Johnson.

Rochdale are pushing for promotion in League Two and caused one of the shocks of round three by knocking out Leeds United.

Full draw:

Sunderland or Carlisle v Kidderminster or Peterborough

Bolton v Cardiff

Southampton v Yeovil

Huddersfield v Charlton or Oxford

Port Vale or Plymouth v Brighton

Nottingham Forest v Ipswich or Preston

Southend v Hull

Rochdale v Macclesfield or Sheffield Wednesday

Arsenal v Coventry

Stevenage v Everton

Wigan or MK Dons v Crystal Palace

Derby or Chelsea v Stoke

Blackburn or Manchester City v Bristol City or Watford

Bournemouth or Burton v Liverpool or Oldham

Birmingham, Bristol Rovers or Crawley v Manchester United or Swansea

Sheffield United v Norwich or Fulham

Ties to be played on the weekend of January 25 and 26.
