Good odds to avoid big guns in Round 5.

Last updated : 27 January 2003 By Dave Burgess

Well of the remaining 16 teams in this years F.A. Cup draw, eight of them are from outside of the Premiership.

Given those odds, would it be asking too much to see 4 all Premiership ties, us play Rochdale at home and go through to the sixth round with a good chance of going all the way?

Well, probably yes.

At this stage you are torn between a glamour tie, Arsenal, Man United, Chelsea or Stoke, Burnley or Walsall at home.

Fixtures that would be to be missed are Sheffield United, Burnley or Fulham away because they offer no glamour and are potential defeats.

Considering we are unlikely to win the competition a trip to Old Trafford would be great as we could take 9,000, enjoy the day out but ultimately get thrashed like West Ham.

Arsenal would be a thrashing, Leeds we’ve beaten before, Southampton at home we’d have a chance.

The scenarios are endless.

We all await the draw at 1.30 today with much anticipation.

Come on the Wolves!
