Everton or Chelsea in Round 5

Sundays draw for the FA Cup 5th round has seen the Royals drawn away to either Everton or Chelsea. The two Premier League giants will fight it out for the right to host us when they replay after a 1-1 draw at Goodison yesterday.


However due to Chelsea's Champions League commitments, that replay is not scheduled until Saturday 19th Feb which is the official date for the 5th round.


That means we are likely to play the winners in a midweek encounter, however if it is Chelsea that we play then they have Saturday 27th February free due to Birmingham's Carling Cup final commitments.


That could mean our away trip to Crystal Palace being postponed but our home game against Watford on 19th February very likely to go ahead as normal.


The tie of the round though was Non League Crawley going to Premier League leaders Manchester United - who said the magic of the cup was gone!
