FA Cup draw on Sunday

West Ham United will learn their FA Cup fifth round opponents on Sunday evening with just eight ties to be drawn at the Football Association's headquarters in London.

The draw - to be conducted by Gary Mabbutt and Gary Pallister - will take place from 6.15pm, once the derby between Liverpool and Everton is concluded. ITV and Setanta Sports will both screen the proceedings live with full news and reaction to follow immediately on whufc.com. The Hammers earned their place after a professional 2-0 win at League One side Hartlepool United on Saturday lunchtime.

Stand-in captain Scott Parker, with Lucas Neill and Matthew Upson both rested, was voted man of the match against Hartlepool. He said: "It was comfortable. At times we were put under pressure but after we scored the first goal and the second so quickly after, it took the sting out of the game and went on to win quite comfortably.

"It is going to be important for our season. Winning is a good habit and we are on a good run. We have put in some good performances and this was another one. It is onwards and upwards."

The FA Cup fifth round will take place on the weekend of 14/15 February. The sixth round follows on 7/8 March before the semi-finals at Wembley on Saturday 18 April. The final will take place at the famous old stadium on Saturday 30 May.
