Pompey Draw Preston

Last updated : 28 January 2008 By Jim Bonner
Pompey have been drawn away at Preston North End in Round 5 of the FA Cup.

Preston got to the fifth round of the FA Cup by beating Scunthorpe 1-0 at home in round three and then they hammered Derby 4-1 at Pride Park on Saturday to set up the tie for the fifth round.

The most intriguing thing about this encounter is that David Nugent could play against his former club if he's fit and still at Pompey.

This was a good draw for us as we have avoided the big guns and I'm confident that we can go to Deepdale and beat a side who are struggling in the Championship.

The tie will be played on the 16th or 17th of February.
