Bolton's reward for victory over Walsall is an FA Cup fourth-round tie against Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Wanderers, who scored five goals in a single half of football for the first time since 1997 en route to their win over the Saddlers, will meet fellow Championship opposition as they bid to reach the last 16 of the competition for the first time since 2012 - when they were eventually beaten at the sixth-round stage by Tottenham Hotspur.

City, who beat Premier League Huddersfield Town to reach this stage, have been comfortable winners on the two previous FA Cup meetings between they and Bolton - winning 5-0 in a first-round tie at Burnden Park in 1903, as well as a 3-1 success in a third-round clash at Ashton Gate in 1979.

The most recent game between the clubs came at the University of Bolton Stadium last September, when the Robins came from two-down to claim a 2-2 draw in the Championship. They are, however, due to meet again in the reverse fixture this coming Saturday.

The tie will take place over the weekend of January 26/27.
