Oldham Athletic handed South Yorkshire tie in FA Cup

Oldham Athletic’s reward for providing one of the shocks for the third round of this season’s FA Cup by knocking out Fulham on Sunday (6th January) is a trip to League One Doncaster Rovers.

It continues Latics’ run of always being away from home in this season’s competition after they travelled to Hampton and Richmond Borough in the first round before heading to Maidstone United in the second round and then on to the banks of the Thames at the weekend.

The draw for the fourth round brings together two teams who know quite a bit about each other then it comes to the FA Cup.

Latics and Doncaster have met five times in the history of the competition, with a meeting at Boundary Park marking the last time back in November 2016, a tie which Oldham won 2-1.

Now they’ll meet again at the Keepmoat Stadium later in January for a place in the fifth round, moving ever closer to the Wembley Stadium final in May.

Oldham’s trip to Doncaster will take place over the weekend of 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th of January with the winners receiving £180,000 in prize money.
