F.A. Cup 4th round draw.

In a fourth round draw that hardly caused too much excitement, City at least landed a home tie, playing the winners of the Leeds-Wigan replay.

The full draw is:
Stoke City/Tamworth v Barnsley/Walsall
Cheltenham Town/Chester City v Newcastle United
Coventry v Nuneaton Borough/Middlesbrough
West Brom/Reading v Torquay/Birmingham
Portsmouth v Liverpool
Leicester v Southampton
Bolton v Arsenal
Aston Villa v Port Vale
Brentford v Sunderland
Manchester City v Wigan/Leeds
Millwall/Everton v Chelsea
Preston v Crystal Palace
West Ham v Blackburn
Colchester v Derby
Charlton v Leyton Orient
Wolves v Burton/Manchester United

It could have been better, it could have been worse, but the old adage of wanting a home tie certainly rings true and whilst there are a few minnows remaining in the draw, we should be confident of overcoming either of those sides at home to progress to the fifth round.
