Beeston challenge for Hull
Tuesday 21 November 1995
The draw for the fourth round of the Association Cup has been kind to the leading teams, with seven of the eight First Division sides who are playing lesser opposition being drawn at home.
The exception is Hull, who are at the foot of the First Division and have not played a home cup tie for five years. They are again drawn away and play Beeston who lead the Second Division.
There are three all First Division ties, two of which are repeats of last weekend's league matches. Hounslow are at home to Havant. The teams met in the 1991 final, which Hounslow won 3-2, but Havant's 4-1 victory on Saturday is likely to be more significant.
Cannock travel to Surbiton, having just beaten the Surrey side 3-0. The third clash is a London derby between Indian Gymkhana and Teddington.
The six regional league sides have all drawn National League opposition, with only Harborne and Wimbledon, against Slough and Gloucester City respectively, enjoying home advantage.
Norton's reward for disposing of First Division Bournville is a visit to Guildford, the Cup holders. Chichester, the other giant-killers, who toppled Crostyx, face Firebrands, another Second Division side.
