Derby Or Forest, Away

Derby Or Forest, Away

Manchester United will face their second lower league opponent in this season's FA Cup as the draw of the fifth round sent us to the winner of the replay between Nottingham Forest and Derby County. It is the first time since 2006 that United were paired with non-Premiership teams twice in the same season.

It will either be a familiar foe, Derby County whom we knocked out of the Carling Cup only last week and whom we beat twice last season in the Premier League; or 'dark horses' Forest, newly promoted to the Championship whom we haven't faced since the Treble year.

Hopefully it's Forest: variety is brilliant, after all, and at least I'll have another excuse to talk about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer!

Regardless of United's opposition, the fifth round games will be played on February 14/15.
