In-form Leicester City head to Championship side Brentford in an intriguing tie for the FA Cup fourth round. The Foxes saw off Stoke City in the last round, while the Bees beat Middlesbrough to book their spot in this tie.

Brentford have been in great form in the league of late, with five wins in the last six games seeing them rise to fourth in the table, just two points off an automatic promotion spot. This will be a big test for their top-flight credentials, though, as Leicester have been impressing in the Premier League, taking three straight wins recently and sitting third in the table, two points off leaders Manchester United.

Brendan Rodgers’ side fell away in the latter part of last season as injuries and a thin squad hampered them, but they look a much more well-rounded side with greater depth this time around and they may well fancy their chances of going all the way in the FA Cup. Follow all the latest below.
