Sheffield United will be included in the 5th round draw despite drawing 1-1 at Preston North End. A replay will be required at Bramall Lane and likely to be played a week tomorrow. Blades fans will no doubt claim that the draw earned at Deepdale was a cup-scalp in itself after Nigel Clough opted to rest 8 players from the squad which lost 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur last week.
The 5th round will make an interesting draw with only three of the ten top sides still remaining in the daw prior to yesterday's live staged game with Bristol City and West Ham United. Bradford City's 4-2 win at Chelsea after coming from two goals down to win the match in what has to be the biggest scalp in the history of the cup. Elsewhere Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw at Cambridge United - the lowest ranked side left in the competition and Middlebrough beat Manchester City by two goals to nil at Eastlands.
The draw will take place on BBC1's OneShow at 7pm with the drawing being made around 7.20pm.
