CARDIFF CITY may take their FA Cup crusade to the Arms Park, after being given a home tie against Luton or Newcastle in yesterday's fifth-round draw.

If the Geordies prevail in next week's replay at Kenilworth Road, the Welsh club will try to switch the tie to the national stadium, which has a capacity of 52,000 - more than double that of Ninian Park. 'It is something everybody is talking about,' Roger Gibbins, the Cardiff coach, said. 'I believe we could fill the Arms Park against Newcastle.' Kidderminster Harriers, the sole non-League survivors, were drawn at home to West Ham or Notts County.

Oldham or Stoke v Plymouth or Barnsley
