Boro could face Man United - if they beat Chelsea

MIDDLESBROUGH have been handed a daunting passage to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Boro will entertain Chelsea in their rearranged fifth round tie after the reigning European champions cruised to a 4-0 win over Brentford in today's fourth-round replay.

The fifth-round game will take place at the Riverside on the evening of Wednesday, January 27.

And if Boro are to pull off a surprise against Chelsea, they could face an even tougher task in the quarter-finals after this evening's draw handed them the possibility of a trip to Old Trafford.

The winners of Boro's game against Chelsea will play an away game at either Manchester United or Reading on the weekend of March 9-10.

Manchester United and Reading play their fifth-round game at Old Trafford tomorrow night.
