FA Cup 5th round draw

The full fifth round draw is as follows:

Wolves or Crystal Palace v Aston Villa
Manchester City v Stoke
Derby v Birmingham
Bolton v Tottenham or Leeds
Chelsea v Cardiff
Fulham v Notts County or Wigan
Reading v West Brom
Southampton v Portsmouth

With Arsenal crashing out earlier today, the draw really has opened up in this seasons competition. Avoiding Chelsea I suppose was the key, so a home tie against Stoke is good draw - they are no pushover but their success has in the main been at The Britannia Stadium.

Given we have also got over the mental block this season of exiting cup competitions at the quarter-final stage, there is every reason to feel we could go a long way in this seasons FA Cup.
