FA Cup 4th Round Draw 1:30 pm Today

FA Cup 4th Round Draw 1:30 pm  Today

Both Reading and Burnley will be ball number four in the FA Cup fourth round draw, which takes place at 1.30pm on Monday.The draw will be live on BBC Two, Five Live, the BBC Sport website and Ceefax.

If we manage to beat Reading this week in the rearranged game at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night then we can look forward to a fourth round match which will be played the weekend of 27th and 28th January.

The FA Cup would appear to be far more important to the Clarets than Reading and we certainly do not have the luxury or the gall of fielding a reserve team.

It will be interesting to see what effect the 4th round draw has on the match this Tuesday night. If both clubs potentially face a big Premiership club in the Fourth Round then the lucrative draw should stimulate the Clarets and motivate them even more to pull out all the stops against Reading. Could this also effect Reading's team selection? As previously intimated, maybe a high-profile draw against Chelsea could influence the Royals to select their first team!

Vital BFC will bring you details of the 4th Round draw as soon as Ball 4 and the opponents ball are drawn out!
