Bolton will travel to either Millwall or Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup.

After seeing off Macclesfield Town in a third round replay, Wanderers advanced to the last 16 of the competition with a 2-1 victory over Swansea City on Saturday afternoon.

A replay will be required to determine who will face Owen Coyle's side in the fifth round, with Millwall and Southampton facing each other at St Mary's on Tuesday 7th February following a 1-1 draw at The Den.

The Saints will be favourites to advance, which will provide an eighth meeting between them and Bolton in the FA Cup.

Bolton's FA Cup record against Southampton is poor with one victory, three draws and three defeats from the seven previous meetings.

Their record against The Lions is more favourable though with the Trotters running out winners on two occasions, including the 1914/15 season where they eventually advanced at the third time of asking following two draws between the two sides.

Whoever advances to the fifth round of the FA Cup will play host to Bolton on the weekend of 18th/19th February 2012.
