Aston Villa get Brighton in FA Cup 4th round to be played at Villa Park

Aston Villa will play Brighton in the next round of the FA Cup and it will be a home tie, which is nice.

Leeds are going to beat Spurs, which is also nice and Chelsea will beat Preston. Other notable matches from the fourth round include Stoke v Arsenal and Everton v Nottingham Forest.


The matches will be played towards the end of January, I do have the date somewhere, but I have forgotten it and I fancy, while it isn't the easiest match we could have hoped for, it is easier than Blackburn.

Okay, because I was arsed. All matches will be played on January 23rd, which is three days after the Blackburn second leg and should mean that no matches, as of today, are moved.
