Ties to be played weekend of 28/29 January

Leyton Orient's reward for eliminating Fulham is another top-flight opponent from the capital, Charlton, in the fourth round. The Coca-Cola League Two side upset the odds to beat the west Londoners 2-1 at Craven Cottage yesterday, and now face the Addicks at The Valley.

The draw for the last 32 threw up three definite all-Premiership ties. Portsmouth are at home to Liverpool, Arsenal face a difficult trip to Bolton and West Ham host Blackburn.

Wolves can look forward to a home tie against either Manchester United or Burton in the fourth round. The Brewers held United to a goalless draw at the Pirelli Stadium to earn a replay at Old Trafford on Wednesday week.

Newcastle, who scraped past Mansfield in the third round, face League Two opposition again in the fourth, with a trip to Cheltenham or Chester awaiting them.

Nuneaton have added incentive to overcome Middlesbrough in their replay at the Riverside Stadium with the prospect of a short trip to near-neighbours Coventry's brand-spanking new Ricoh Arena if they make it through.

Tamworth will face Barnsley or Walsall at home if they can see off Stoke in a replay, having forced a goalless draw at the Britannia Stadium.
