Non-leaguers' FA Cup dream chance

Havant & Waterlooville players celebrate their heroic draw

Non-league team Havant & Waterlooville are in with the chance of a dream trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool, after the FA Cup fourth round draw.

The Blue Square South side need to beat Swansea in a third-round replay next week, and Liverpool must beat Luton.

There were only two guaranteed all-Premier League ties, Manchester United versus Tottenham Hotspur or Reading, and Wigan against Chelsea.

Mansfield, 23rd in League Two, will play Premier League side Middlesbrough.

The fourth round will also see two third-round giantkillers face each other.

Oldham, who knocked out Everton, will play at home to Huddersfield who beat Birmingham.

The draw means at least seven non-Premier League footie teams will make it through to the last 16 in the competition.
