BRADFORD CITY will welcome Hull City in an all-Yorkshire affair in the fourth round of the FA Cup – if they dispose of League One rivals Bury in next week’s third-round replay at Valley Parade.

Victory for the Bantams over the Shakers next Tuesday will ensure that the White Rose will have at least one representative in the last 16 of the competition in February.

Meanwhile, Leeds United could face a banana-skin trip to National League outfit Eastleigh if the Hampshire club – the only non-league representative left in the competition – win their replay at Bolton Wanderers next week.

Sheffield Wednesday will travel to the New Meadow for the first time to face Shrewsbury Town having last visited the Shropshire outfit in September 1987.

Huddersfield Town, who face a replay at Reading next Tuesday, will host League One side Walsall if they dispose of the Royals at the second time of asking.

Holders Arsenal will host Burnley – conquerors of Middlesbrough at the weekend – while Manchester United, who saw off Sheffield United thanks to a stoppage-time penalty from their captain Wayne Rooney on Saturday, travel to Championship promotion chasers Derby County.

Manchester City will visit Wycombe or Aston Villa, while Crystal Palace entertain Stoke in the only confirmed all-Premier League tie.

Chelsea travel to Northampton or MK Dons.
