Sports

LONDON (AP)Sixth-tier Kidderminster’s reward for reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup for the first time in 35 years is a home match against Premier League team West Ham.

Kidderminster rallied to beat Reading 2-1 on Saturday.

The other non-league team to make it to the last 32 – fifth-tier Boreham Wood – also was handed a tough match when the draw was made Sunday, a trip to Championship leader Bournemouth.

Third-tier Cambridge, which won away to Newcastle in the biggest shock of the third round, was drawn at home to second-tier Luton.

There were three guaranteed all-Premier League matchups – Everton vs. Brentford, Tottenham vs. Brighton and Wolverhampton vs. Norwich – while the favorites for the competition got home draws against lower-league opposition.

Defending Premier League champion Manchester City will host Fulham, Liverpool will play Cardiff and Chelsea was drawn with Plymouth.

Leicester, the defending champion, will play away to either Nottingham Forest or Arsenal, who were meeting later Sunday.

The fourth round will take place early next month.
