Tottenham Hotspur draw Leeds or Birmingham in FA Cup

Clive Rose

It could have been worse, but it's not easy. Spurs have a road match against a Championship Club in the FA Cup Fourth Round.

The FA Cup Fourth Round draw has dropped, and Tottenham Hotspur will have to wait a bit longer to know who their opponent is. What they do know is that they'll be facing a relatively tough away match against a Championship side. Spurs will travel away to face either Leeds United or Birmingham City.

Leeds and Birmingham played to a 1-1 draw at Elland Road on Saturday, with Luciano Becchio rescuing a replay for the home side. Birmingham are currently fighting the drop in the Championship, while Leeds are fighting for a promotion playoff place.

Because of the timing of the match (and the Championship opposition), Andre Villas-Boas will probably be forced to pick a heavily rotated side. It falls on the weekend of January 25/26, sandwiched between a home match against Manchester United and a game away to Norwich City.

Here's the entire draw.

Norwich City vs. Luton Town
Oldham Athletic vs. Mansfield Town or Liverpool
Macclesfield Town vs. Wigan Athletic or Bournmouth
Derby County vs. Blackburn Rovers
Hull City or Leyton Orient vs. Barnsley
Middlesbrough vs. Aldershot Town
Millwall vs. Aston Villa
Leeds United or Birmingham City vs. Tottenham Hotspur
Brighton and Hove Albion vs. Swansea City or Arsenal
Crystal Palace or Stoke City vs. Manchester City
Wast Ham United or Manchester United vs. Fulham or Blackpool
Southend United or Brentford vs. Chelsea
Reading vs. Sheffield United
Huddersfield Town vs. Leicester City
Queens Park Rangers or West Bromwich Albion vs. Sheffield Wednesday or MK Dons
Bolton Wanderers or Sunderland vs. Charltenham or Everton
