FA Cup fifth round draw: Maidstone miss out on Premier League tie

The draw for the FA Cup fifth round has been made as the remaining teams learn their opponents for the next stage.

Maidstone United’s reward for their upset of Ipswich Town in the fourth round is a tie against Sheffield Wednesday or Coventry City, who will face off in a replay.

George Elokobi’s side are the first team from outside the top five tiers to reach the fifth round since 1978, after beating the Championship high-flyers on Saturday. The win for the sixth-tier side came despite a 98-place difference between the teams in England’s football pyramid.


Elsewhere, holders Manchester City will travel to face Luton Town, while there’s another all-Premier League clash between Wolves and Brighton at Molineux.
