Hammers face Charlton or Boro in semi-final

West Ham United will face Charlton Athletic or Middlesbrough in this year's FA Cup semi-finals.

Our number two ball was drawn out last by Alan Pardew's former Crystal Palace team-mate Geoff Thomas, who came close to FA Cup glory with Pards in 1990 when Palace beat Liverpool 4-3 in a thrilling semi-final before losing to Manchester United after a replay in the final. The draw means that Chelsea and Liverpool will do battle in the other semi-final.

The date and venue of our semi-final clash against Charlton or Boro will be announced here as soon as it is confirmed by the Football Association.

Ticket information for the game will also appear here as soon as it is finalised.
