Emirates FA Cup fourth round date and kick-off time confirmed

Emirates FA Cup trophy

 

West Ham United will face AFC Wimbledon in the Emirates FA Cup fourth round on Saturday 26 January 2019 at 7.45pm, with the tie being broadcast live in the UK by BT Sport.

After defeating Birmingham City in the third round a week ago, Monday’s draw handed Manuel Pellegrini's men a second trip of the season Kingsmeadow, where the Hammers won 3-1 in the Carabao Cup third round back in September.

The Dons have themselves won three away ties, at Haringey Borough, FC Halifax Town and Fleetwood Town, to reach the last 32 for the first time since the club was formed in 2002.

West Ham are seeking their fourth FA Cup triumph, having previously won the competition in 1964, 1975 and 1980. The Irons last reached the fifth round in 2015/16, when they went on to the quarter-finals before being eliminated in a replay by Manchester United.

Ticketing details will be announced on whufc.com in due course.
