Harriers land plum tie against Hammers

-

THE lowest-ranked club left in the FA Cup have been given a Premier League prize as reward for beating Championsh­ip club Reading to reach the fourth round. Kiddermins­ter Harriers from the National League sixth tier will entertain West Ham United, just as they did in 1994 when the Hammers left Aggborough with a 1-0 victory. Manager Russell Penn said of his team’s showdown with David Moyes’ men: ‘This is what the FA Cup is about. I’ve been sweating all day, hot and cold, waiting for that plum tie. My phone has gone into meltdown. ‘These stories are history and hopefully we can write more history. Everyone is talking about 1994, 27 years on I think this is an even bigger achievemen­t now.’ Fellow non-league side Boreham Wood, who overcame Wimbledon, will travel to Bournemout­h, while Cambridge, who knocked out Newcastle, have been given a home tie against Luton Town. League Two Hartlepool, who are competing in round four for the first time since 2009, will go to Crystal Palace, while Huddersfie­ld face Yorkshire neighbours

Barnsley at home. Championsh­ip side Nottingham Forest’s reward for beating Arsenal yesterday is a visit from holders Leicester City. The draw looks beneficial for the Premier League big hitters, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Wolves and Tottenham all drawn at home.
