Southend United will face Phil Brown’s former club Hull City in the fourth round of the FA Cup at Roots Hall.
The tie will be played over the weekend of 25th/26th January, with ticket details to be announced in due course.
Blues beat Morecambe, Chesterfield and Millwall to reach the fourth round of the competition, while Hull beat Middlesbrough 2-0 yesterday.
