Norwich will face Sheffield United away in the FA Cup fourth round if they overcome Fulham in a third round replay.

Chris Hughton’s side were pitted against the League One Blades in Sunday’s fourth round draw held at Wembley, but Norwich’s immediate task is to beat the Cottagers in a third round replay at Craven Cottage next week after the two sides drew 1-1 at Carrow Road on Saturday - Robert Snodgrass’ stooping header from Josh Murphy’s cut-back cancelling out Darren Bent’s earlier opener. City were on the front foot for the majority of the second half but Cottagers’ keeper David Stockdale denied Ricky van Wolfswinkel with a fine close-range reaction stop.

Hughton admitted afterwards a pending trip to Craven Cottage on January 14 just four days before Hull’s crunch Premier League meeting is far from ideal.

“It is definitely a game we could have done without but we would rather still be in the competition,” he said. “It means we are still in the hat. We would preferred to have gone through but we would rather be in the competition. I know our supporters want us to be in the competition and that is what we will try to do.”

Sheffield United knocked out former Norwich boss Paul Lambert’s Aston Villa 2-1 on Saturday at Villa Park. Fourth round ties are scheduled to take place over the weekend of Saturday, January 25.

  • We shouldn't let the day pass without acknowledging one of the all time greats who died today in Eusebio. Second only to Pele in that era of the 1960's. I did have the pleasure to see him. It was a European Cup game in 1972 for Benfica at Derby. Took place in October when it hadn't rained for days. Cloughie borrowed a fire hose from the brigade and spent the night before the game pumping water onto the pitch. This turned the Baseball Ground into its usual quagmire. Eusebio was pretty anonymous and Derby won three nil. However this was not typical of the Black Pearl who averaged virtually a goal per game in 550 matches. The Dan wrote a tribute song to him in '73 called Pearl of the Quarter (that's for Bill).

  • Yes I am Lobbo, infact I would like to suggest a 'Triple B' campaign, namely 'Bring Back Brew'. With regard to winning there, I'm pretty sure I did see us win once, probably in the eighties. I have painful memories of Fulham away. Heck, don't we all. The last time I was there, we lost five nil. It was a scorching day, and Autumn was round the corner. Not only that, I'd fallen deeply in love with a Japanese bird at work. Needless to say, neither venture worked out. Sometimes life just bites you on the bottom

  • Two things, As Sheffield is a stones throw from where I am, I may well consider taking my good self and my 13 year son ( has all the Norwich shirts with which to promenade through Meadow Hall shopping complex) to the game, assuming of course we sweep away an inferior Fulham.(have we actually won there, ever?). and two, Bill are you missing Brews postings.

  • I thought you might be tempted by the replay Bill. Stroll along the Thames ,cross over by Putney Bridge. You may spot David Mellor, Will Carling or even the idiot Ed Balls en route. I f you go in the home end you may well get in for a quid - bargain.

  • Well said Steely. For me it was the game against Korea that lives in the memory, and weren't they a plucky bunch, not like that idiot with the dreadful barber And if you hear from my Louise Won't you tell her I love her so Please make it clear When her day is done She got a place to go Right that's it, she may have broken my heart, but she will not influence any more football results, especially the next Fulham game. Stunk of raw fish too.

  • Really Dingo, you can't have forgotten; it was her that sent that blessed Kagawa fellow on to score a hat trick against. You're telling me that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and its almost certainly why we spend the majority of our days on these boards!

  • Jimmy Armfield just said this. "I saw Swansea play against Manchester City and I was very impressed with them. They kept the ball and gave City a lot of problems. It's the way they play, and specifically the way they have been coached." I want people to say that about us.

  • Another quote from Jimmy Armfield about Swansea's 1-2 over ManU, "You could see Swansea's body-language, they felt they could win this game. Give Michael Laudrup credit too, for taking a defensive midfielder off and putting on a forward." That's what we are missing.

  • Man Utd fans can sing as much as they want , after all they win more than they lose and are generally entertained each and every game . We on the other hand are visually abused on a weekly basis , showing no signs of forward momentum or thinking . Dan if you are genuinely happy with what you see , then good for you I'm happy for you . I'm not though I'm sick of it , but it doesn't mean my support for my club should be questioned by anyone .

  • Both have got hair El Dingo, mine comes from continually scratching my bald patch. I've given up trying to work out the manager's tactics. Being a masochist though, I'll probably go to the Fulham game, seeing as its only five miles away.

  • Sadly we've been there , done that , still being subjected to c#^p . CH does not work as far I'm concerned and we need to get rid quickly , nothing against the guy on a personal level but we're not getting better , the performances never seem to improve and it's now well beyond the point of being funny .

  • Watching city away mostly, I had the chance to go to CR for the Swansea match the other week. I was blown away by how poor the city support was, in comparison to our away support. I was gutted at how each ball they have away was groaned at and that the fans only really got behind the team once Hooper scored. I bring it up because I was offered a ticket to today's Swansea match at Old Trafford by my mate who has an OT season ticket. Utd were woeful, in fact they were worse than Norwich were against them and worse than we were against Swansea and Fulham yesterday. Yet the atmosphere was still good, the Stretford End didn't stop singing and rather than berating their players for giving the ball away or not being positive enough (honestly it was like Moyes is Hughton and Pulis' love child) they encouraged them forward. Now there's an underperforming team, fielding a much more 1st team than we did yesterday, and rammed full if expensive players. Swansea didn't play that well either. I think if the CR faithful don't get behind the team then the players will lose confidence even more. I am convinced that had a huge impact on Norwich going down to L1, and indeed the 7-1 defeat. Most fans need to be more objective with their criticisms and give credit where credit is due and when in the ground, get that ground rocking.

  • Actually, no I'm not happy - however my position is that survival is the number one priority - not managerial changes or picking holes in everything. That time is at the end of the season.
