MIDDLESBROUGH will entertain either Chelsea or Brentford in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Boro were drawn at home for the third round in succession in this afternoon's draw, but after matches against Hastings and Aldershot, things are set to become significantly tougher with European champions Chelsea lying in wait.

Rafael Benitez's side needed a late strike from Fernando Torres to secure a 2-2 draw at League One Brentford this afternoon.

But they will be firm favourites when the two sides replay at Stamford Bridge, with the game scheduled on the same Saturday as the fifth round owing to Chelsea's involvement in the Europa League.

Boro's fifth-round tie is provisionally slated for February 26-27.
