Watch: Sutton United Seemed Very Disappointed To Draw Leeds In The FA Cup
By Gavin Cooney

The FA Cup fourth round draw took place last night. It was a two-handed broadcast, with Mark 'Chappers' Chapman of the BBC broadcasting from Sutton United - the lowest ranked team left in the competition, by virtue of their incipient replay with AFC Wimbledon - before handing off to Jake Humphrey, Michael Owen and Martin Keown in the shady-sounding BT Tower.

Chappers was on hand to capture a jubilant recording of the essence of the cup: a lower-league team celebrating a money-spinning prestigious trip to Old Trafford, the Emirates, Anfield or Stamford Bridge.

After a few interviews with the Sutton club about What The Cup Means To Them, Chappers handed the broadcast off to BT Sport. The BBC did manage to negotiate a small corner of the screen to show the live reaction from Sutton, and it didn't exactly work.

Sutton came out of the draw early, and first, meaning they were given a home draw. The assembled members of the club waited with baited breath to see the opponent Martin Keown pulled out of the hat. Cue the deeply underwhelmed reaction. The flags in the background were raised upon mention of Sutton, but weren't seen again upon mention of the winners of Leeds and Cambridge United.

We love Martin Keown's knowing glance across to Jake Humphrey to acknowledge how disappointing the draw is.
Leeds came from behind to beat Cambridge last night, meaning, should Sutton overcome the challenge of AFC Wimbledon, they'll host Garry Monk's side.

Here's the draw in full:


Tottenham Hotspur v Wycombe Wanderers
Derby County v Leicester City
Oxford United v Birmingham or Newcastle United
