Tottenham still have to win a replay against Newport County if they want to be in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup, but they now already know who they’ll play if they do make it that far. Or, at least, they know it will be one of two teams.
The winner of the Spurs-Newport match will play away against the winner of Millwall-Rochdale.

Spurs struggled against Newport at Rodney Parade, but will be heavy favorites at Wembley once again. That replay is scheduled for next Wednesday.
Millwall will be favorites for their replay with Rochdale on Tuesday. The Lions sit comfortably in mid-table in the Championship, while “The Dale” (yes that’s actually their nickname) are second from bottom in League One.
If Mauricio Pochettino’s side win, they’ll either be traveling to The Den in South London, or Spotland Stadium up in Greater Manchester.
Here’s the full draw for the fifth round of the competition. There are still some replays to be resolved.
- Sheffield Wednesday v. Notts County / Swansea
- West Brom vs. Southampton
- Chelsea vs. Hull City
- Leicester City vs. Sheffield United
- Huddersfield Town / Birmingham City vs. Manchester United
- Millwall / Rochdale vs. Newport County / Tottenham Hotspur
- Brighton & Hove Albion vs. Coventry City
- Wigan Athletic vs. Manchester City
