Colchester United will play at home to either Tottenham or Leicester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The draw for round four was made this evening, and the U’s were paired at home to either Tottenham or Leicester, who face a replay after a 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane yesterday.

So far in this season’s competition, the U’s have won at Wealdstone 6-2 in round one, beaten another non-league outfit in Altrincham 3-2 in round two, and then defeated Championship strugglers Charlton Athletic 2-1 in last Saturday’s third round tie.

The fourth round ties will be played over the weekend January 29-31.
