IPSWICH Town have been drawn away to fellow Nationwide Division One side Sheffield United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Blues manager Joe Royle, whose side drew 0-0 at Bramall Lane in a league game in October, said: "Both sides are in form in the league at the moment. We've both got bigger fish to fry, but a good Cup run would be great for each of us.

"We'll be going to Yorkshire to give it all we've got, and it will be a very tough game."
