Wrexham’s reward for their 4-3 FA Cup win at Coventry on Saturday is a home match against another Championship side, Sheffield United in the fourth round of this year’s competition.

Sam Dalby, Elliot Lee, Thomas O’Connor and Paul Mullin scored in front of over 4,000 travelling fans as Wrexham reached the fourth round of the competition for the first time since 2000 with the thrilling victory.

The other National League teams remaining in the contest are Chesterfield and Boreham Wood.

The winners of the Chesterfield’s replay against West Brom will play Bristol City or Swansea away, while Boreham Wood or Accrington will take on Cardiff or Leeds at home.

Manchester City will face either Oxford or Arsenal in the FA Cup fourth round following their 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea on Sunday.

The draw for round four took place just before the City-Chelsea tie kicked off at the Etihad Stadium, and with Arsenal set to play at Oxford on Monday evening to wrap up four days of third-round action.

All-Premier League tie

A guaranteed all-Premier League tie emerging from the draw was Brighton hosting either Liverpool or Wolves.

The draw, the ties from which are set to take place from January 27-30, also included Manchester United entertaining Paul Ince’s Reading and a trip for Tottenham to Preston.

After their shock 2-1 win at Aston Villa on Sunday, League Two Stevenage will head to Stoke.

Walsall, also of the fourth tier, are at home against Leicester and there is a visit from top-flight opposition for League One Derby as well as they host West Ham, while Fulham and Southampton welcome Sunderland and Blackpool respectively.

After knocking out Newcastle, Sheffield Wednesday play fellow third-tier outfit Fleetwood at Hillsborough and another, Ipswich, face Championship leaders Burnley at Portman Road.

The other ties see Luton or Wigan host Grimsby and Blackburn play Forest Green or Birmingham at Ewood Park.
