Road to Wembley: FA Cup 4th Round Draw

fa-cup.jpg After the topsy-turvy results from the weekend, there are 12 replays to be had before we know the exact picture of the next round.

The club I have been following, League Two stugglers Bury, is involved in one such replay against Norwich City, currently 20th in the Championship. Should Bury win, a match against Southampton is their reward.

The potential big winners of the draw are non-league Havant & Waterlooville, who have been given the chance of a dream trip to Anfield. The Blue Square South side, the lowest ranked team left in the tournament, need to beat League One leaders Swansea in their third-round replay, while Liverpool has to defeat Luton.

Tottenham, who will face Manchester United if they can beat Reading in their replay, have had their Premier League clash against Chelsea moved up two days to accommodate their FA Cup replay against Reading. Spurs’ game at Stamford Bridge was due to be live on TV on Monday January 14th, but it will now be played on Saturday as the replay at Reading is scheduled for Tuesday.

The full draw for the FA Cup fourth round is:

Arsenal v Stoke City/Newcastle
Coventry v Walsall/Millwall
Oldham v Huddersfield Town
Swindon/Barnet v Fulham/Bristol Rovers
Wigan v Chelsea
Luton/Liverpool v Swansea/Havant & Waterlooville
