Sunderland Get Away Day In FA Cup Draw

Sunderland will have to play away from home in a cup tie this season after all after being paired with either Brighton or Hull CIty.

Sunderland will go away from home for the first time in ages in the Sixth round of the FA Cup as this afternoon they were drawn against either Brighton or Hull City.

Both ties have their immediate story lines which spring to mind. Gus Poyet travelling back to the club he left under dubious circumstances is a potential banana-skin for Sunderland, while if Hull triumph in tomorrow night's FA Cup clash we meet once again with Steve Bruce.

Either way it looks like not only being a cracking cup tie, and equally an excellent opportunity to get through to Wembley yet again for a semi-final.

The ties will be played on the 8th and 9th of March, just a week after our trip to Wembley against Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final.
