SUNDERLAND have been handed an away tie at League One Bradford City in the fifth round of the FA Cup ... if they beat Fulham in next Tuesday’s replay.
The Black Cats could only draw with Championship side Fulham on Saturday, and visit Craven Cottage next week.
The winner of that tie will then have a tough trip to the buoyant Bantams, who pulled off an amazing 4-2 win at Chelsea in one of the great FA Cup shocks of all-time.
If Gus Poyet’s side do win through next week, they will come up against former Black Cats striker Jon Stead, who was in great form at Stamford Bridge.
Middlesbrough’s reward for winning at Manchester City is another away game against one of the favourites Arsenal, who won at Brighton yesterday.
FA CUP FIFTH ROUND DRAW: Crystal Palace v Liverpool/Bolton; Arsenal v Middlesbrough; Aston Villa v Leicester; West Brom v West Ham; Bradford v Sunderland/Fulham; Blackburn v Stoke/Rochdale; Derby v Reading; Preston/Sheffield United v Cambridge/Manchester United
Ties to be played across the weekend of February 14 and 15.
