It's The Rams Away In The FA Cup

Nottingham Forest were drawn out of the hat to play arch rivals Derby County at Prideless Park, in the 4th round of the FA Cup.

The tie is scheduled to be played over the weekend of January 24 and has a good chance of getting televised, being one of the ties of the round. It will of course be another Brian Clough Trophy Game, with the Sheep being the current holders.

Just to add a bit of extra spice, it will be the first visit back to the Sheepdip for former Derby boss and current Forest man Billy Davies. Tickets for this one will be as rare as the proverbial. Let's hope Ticketmaster get the job of distributing them again.

The 4th round draw in full:

Liverpool v Everton
Southampton or Manchester United v Tottenham
Hull or Newcastle v Millwall or Crewe
Sunderland v Blyth or Blackburn
Hartlepool v West Ham
Leyton Orient or Sheffield United v Charlton or Norwich
Cardiff v Arsenal
Portsmouth or Bristol City v Histon or Swansea
Chelsea or Southend v Ipswich
Cheltenham or Doncaster v Aston Villa
West Brom or Peterborough v QPR or Burnley
Torquay v Coventry
Kettering v Fulham
Watford v Leicester or Crystal Palace
Derby v Nottingham Forest
Birmingham or Wolves v Middlesbrough

There's certainly a few side stories, especially if Clough becomes Derby manager!
