Bolton Wanderers or Sunderland get Everton or Cheltenham Town in the FA Cup fourth round
WANDERERS have been given a home draw against either Everton or Cheltenham Town should they come through the third-round replay at Sunderland.
Dougie Freedman’s men face the difficult task of having to beat Martin O’Neill’s Premier League team on their own ground a week on Tuesday if they are to stay alive in the world’s oldest national knockout competition.
Should they be successful, they will face the winners of tomorrow’s tie between David Moyes’ men and their potential giant-killing oponents on the weekend of January 26/27.
Wanderers came within an ace of disposing of Sunderland on Saturday when they performed admirably but let a 2-0 lead slip.
Now they must produce something akin to the famous White Hot replay victory at Liverpool which went down in club history when Bruce Rioch’s men won at Anfield 20 years ago this month.
And the irony is that their probable fourth-round opposition will be Everton who they beat in a game dubbed White Hot 2 two decades ago.
