fa cup

Only two clubs outside the top two divisions of English football remain in the FA Cup with Southampton and Notts County holding the torch for the lower tiers. Several interesting match-ups will give the fifth round of the FA Cup a testy and combative nature. Southampton and Portsmouth will play in an important South Coast Derby that will have ramifications far beyond just the result of the individual match. And Reading play West Bromich Albion which guarantees that a Championship club will reach the quarterfinals.
