Today's draw ended a run of eight succesive home draws for Sunderland in this season's cup competitions, but still offers a decent opportunity of a second trip to Wembley.

If Brighton win tomorrow, Gustavo Poyet will return to the Amex Stadium for the first time since leaving the Seagulls in controversial circumstances last summer.

If Hull progress to the quarter-finals, Sunderland will line up against the former manager Steve Bruce, who engineered a 2-0 win at the Stadium of Light earlier this month.
