OXFORD United will visit West Bromwich Albion in the Emirates FA Cup fifth round if they can beat Newcastle United next week.

The Sky Bet Championship leaders won at West Ham United last weekend.

The U's last visited the Hawthorns in 2014, when the hosts won a League Cup tie on a penalty shoot-out.

First, Karl Robinson’s side have to pull off a shock against the Magpies.

They earned a replay next Tuesday following a goalless draw at St James’ Park on Saturday.

The last-16 ties are scheduled to take place in a midweek slot for the first time, in the week commencing March 2.

It is designed to help alleviate fixture congestion for the Premier League sides, as does the change to scrap replays from the fifth round – meaning the ties will be played to a finish.

The prize money for winners in the fourth round is £180,000.
