Colchester United have been handed a glamour FA Cup fourth-round tie against either Tottenham Hotspur or Leicester City.

The U's will host either Spurs or the Foxes, who drew 2-2 at White Hart Lane yesterday and face a replay next week.

It is a huge tie for Colchester, who will face Premier League opposition for the first-ever time in a competitive game at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Colchester made it through to the fourth round for the first time in ten years at the weekend after beating Charlton Athletic 2-1, in the third round thanks to goals from George Moncur and Marvin Sordell.

The U's had earlier beaten Wealdstone and Altrincham to progress to meet the Addicks.

The fourth round will take place across the weekend of Friday January 29 to Monday February 1 with winning clubs receiving £90,000 from The FA’s prize fund.
