FA Cup

By Anthony Marshall - Newcastle United Club Reporter


Newcastle United face a trip to either Brighton or Wrexham in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

After Saturday's dramatic 2-1 victory over Blackburn, in which goals from Hatem Ben Arfa and Jonas Gutierrez sealed the win, the Magpies will now be on their travels in the next stage of the famous cup competition.

Brighton and Wrexham played out a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Saturday. Jake Forster-Caskey put the Seagulls in front, before the Welsh side levelled through Adrian Cieslewicz to force a replay.

In the draw on Sunday afternoon at Wembley, Newcastle were ball number 23 and were in the first pairing out of the hat.

Elsewhere, there is a huge clash between Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield, giant killers Swindon Town head to either Nottingham Forest or Leicester City, Sunderland take on Middlesbrough, and Tottenham face a tricky tie away at Watford.

The tie will be played on the weekend of 28th January, 2012. Confirmation of the exact date will appear first on nufc.co.uk in the coming days.
