Our reward for coming through that absorbing fourth round tie at Kettering on Saturday is a trip to Championship Swansea City in the fifth round.

Swansea are going well in the Championship under impressive manager Roberto Martinez having been prompoted from League 1 last year. They achieved the result of the round – with a shock 2-0 victory over the holders Portsmouth at Fratton Park, a result that was fully deserved.

The tie should reunite us with our former traineee Darren Prately, who has been impressive in the Swansea midfield. This one certainly won’t be easy. Perhaps we might even get on the telly.

The full draw is as follows:

Sheffield United v Hull City

Watford v Chelsea

West Ham United v Middlesbrough

Sunderland or Blackburn Rovers v Covenrtry City

Derby County or Nottingham Forest v Manchester United

Swansea City v Fulham

Liverpool or Everton v Doncaster Rovers or Aston Villa

Cardiff City or Arsenal v West Bromwich Albion or Burnley

(Ties to be played on February 14-15)
