Boro's U18s will take on Fulham in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup following a 5-0 demolition of Rotherham in Round 3.

That game was played at Bishop Auckland's Heritage Park and the club are delighted that the same venue will be used for the game with Fulham on Wednesday January 11, kick-off 7pm.

"It's a great little set up there," enthused Lead Coach Mark Tinkler.

"The pitch is in great condition, the facilities are excellent and the people very friendly. We're grateful to Bishop Auckland for allowing us the chance to use their ground again and we're looking forward to the tie."

Fulham advanced to round four with a 3-1 win over Mansfield Town and will be a whole lot tougher for Boro than Rotherham proved to be.

"Fulham are a good club with a very good Academy," acknowledges Tinkler. "This will be a hard game, but it will be for them too, this should be a very good cup tie."
