Stoke City have earned a home tie against Brighton and Hove Albion after seeing off the Wolves this afternoon.

The Potters took it to the wire at Molineux in a lack-lustre game that didn’t explode into live until the 80th minute when Robert Huth headed us into a lead which Thomas Sorensen ensured was ours when he saved an injury time penalty. The victory takes us into the fifth round of the FA Cup and we’ve now got home advantage against the Seagulls who’d earned their place with a 1-0 away win over Watford yesterday.

It may not seem to be an exciting tie, but it’s a great opportunity for us to progress further, especially with several other Premier League clubs (replays permitting) likely to be facing each other in the next round.

The full draw:
Fulham v Bolton or Wigan
Man Utd v Crawley
Everton or Chelsea v Reading
Leyton Orient v Arsenal
Birmingham City v Sheff Wed
Stoke City v Brighton
Notts County or Man City v Aston Villa
West Ham v Burnley

The matches will be played on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th February.
