The FA Cup fourth round will come to a close in midweek as replays decide which final sides progress to the fifth round.

The competition has already seen the exits of teams like Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle, while feel-good stories like Wrexham’s run show the good old fashioned spirit of the cup is alive and well.

Here are the games to take notice of on Tuesday and Wednesday.

There were five ties in the 2022/23 FA Cup that will require replays to separate the sides, be it in normal time, extra time or on penalties.

Ipswich and Burnley couldn’t be separated in a goalless encounter at Portman Road and will duke it out again at Turf Moor. Championship Sunderland went a goal up early on against Fulham but couldn’t hold on, while Grimsby vs Luton and Wrexham vs Sheffield United provided excellent entertainment in the first games with respective 2-2 and 3-3 draws.

The first game between Sheffield United and Wrexham was billed as a clash between two form sides through the Football League and there’ll be hopes for more drama in the replay after the 3-3 draw.

A fifth round tie at home to Tottenham is the reward for the winners. Both sides will be targeting promotion in their leagues, but the hint of a giant-killing in the next round could provide more of an incentive here.

Sunderland vs Fulham

Fulham will be without manager Marco Silva for their trip to Sunderland. The head coach received his fourth yellow card of the season during the goalless draw with Chelsea on Friday night and will not be on the touchline.

His Cottagers side scrambled to salvage a replay as Tom Cairney equalised just after the hour mark following Jack Clarke’s sixth minute opener.

Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham are the last top six sides remaining in the FA Cup and their fifth round games will each be shown by UK broadcasters.
