This evening the draw for the FA Cup fourth round was made with Blackburn finding out they will have an away tie against Oxford, well if Newport are beaten anyway!

Dreams of FA Cup glory continue for many still involved (and dreams are all it’ll be for some of course), which remain alive after ‘the big boys’ from the Premier League and Championship came into the competition in round three, including us!

Following the draw, made on BBC1 during ‘the One Show’ (I know, really! Does the FA Cup not deserve something more), it is now known all that stands between us and a place in the fifth round is a win in this fourth round tie!

Oh, if easy it was that simple not that it’ll be as straightforward as that of course as this is the FA Cup we’re talking about isn’t it….

Fourth round draw in full.

Northampton Town or MK Dons v Chelsea
Bury/Bradford v Hull City
Colchester United v Tottenham or Leicester
Ipswich/ Portsmouth v AFC Bournemouth
Oxford United v Newport County or Blackburn
Crystal Palace v Stoke City
Carlisle or Yeovil v Everton
Nottingham Forest v Watford
Shrewsbury Town v Sheffield Wednesday
Wycombe/ Aston Villa v Manchester City
Exeter City or Liverpool v West Ham
Huddersfield/ Reading v Walsall
Derby County v Manchester United
Arsenal v Burnley
Eastleigh or Bolton v Leeds United
West Brom/ Bristol City v Peterborough United

Now the questions being asked are, are you happy with the tie and are you confident of the chances of making it into the next round?
