Good evening everybody and welcome to live coverage of the FA Cup Fifth Round Draw with myself, Nick (@nickdougchenery on Twitter) The fourth round was completed over the weekend and there were a few surprising results and two cup upsets.

Wigan beat Premier League side West Ham 2-0 at the DW Stadium and the League One leaders are one of five teams from Leagues 1 & 2 still in the draw (replays permitting, of course) Of the other lower ranked sides still left in the draw, Newport County came agonisingly close to beating Spurs and Notts County earned a replay against Swansea thanks to a late Jon Stead goal.

Rochdale were denied a win against Millwall thanks to a 91st minute equaliser for the Lions and Coventry continued their impressive cup run by beating MK Dons 1-0 away. Those five teams and the other 15 teams (again, before the replays) left in the draw will be eager to see what awaits them in the next round.

Draw numbers are here!
