Middlesbrough next in FA Cup

West Ham United have been drawn at home against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup fifth round with the tie to take place on the weekend of 14/15 February.

The Hammers memorably met Middlesbrough in the 2005/06 semi-final at Villa Park when Marlon Harewood's solitary 78th-minute strike separated the teams. That took the three-time winners - in 1964, 1975 and 1980 - through to the showpiece in Cardiff, where they lost out to Liverpool on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

Gareth Southgate's men will prove a difficult prospect when they arrive in east London next month - with the two teams drawing 1-1 when they last met at the Riverside back on 1 November. Boro are also due at the Boleyn Ground on 24 May for the last Barclays Premier League meeting of the season.

The draw - conducted by Gary Mabbutt and Gary Pallister - was conducted at FA headquarters at Soho Square, London. The Hammers had earned their place after a professional 2-0 win at League One side Hartlepool United on Saturday lunchtime.

The winners of the tie will enter the sixth round on 7/8 March. The semi-finals are due to take place at Wembley on Saturday 18 April. The final will take place at the famous old stadium on Saturday 30 May.
