FA Cup Fourth Round Draw

Last updated : 06 January 2003 By Andy Burton
Assuming we get past Crewe, Bournemouth are on the road to the Britannia Stadium to pit their wits against Stoke City. Significant as Stoke are currently managed by ex-Bournemouth manager and player, Tony Pulis.

Since leaving Dean Court at the start of the Great Escape season, Pulis has managed Gillingham, Bristol City, and Portsmouth, all of which have ended in legal action between the Club and Pulis!!

Stoke are on a roll at the moment having dispensed of Wigan Athletic in Round 3.

The most romantic tie of the round concerns Farnborough Town. Having beaten Darlington away, they've been drawn at home to Arsenal!!

The full draw:
Norwich City/Brighton v Plymouth Argyle/Dagenham & Redbridge
Southampton v Cambridge United/Millwall
Reading/Walsall v Wimbledon
Blackburn Rovers v Bolton Wanderers/Sunderland
Rochdale v Cardiff City/Coventry City
Fulham v Charlton Athletic
Sheffield United v Ipswich Town

Brentford v Grimsby/Burnley
Farnborough Town v Arsenal
Manchester United v West Ham United
