Luton Town were first out of the hat in this afternoon’s FA Cup fourth round draw at Wembley as keeper Mark Tyler was handed his dream tie - a trip to hometown club Norwich City, writes Mark Wood.

The Hatters earned their place in the fourth round for the first time since 2007 with a 1-0 victory over Championship Wolves at Kenilworth Road yesterday (Saturday).

Premier League Norwich, meanwhile, who sit 12th in the top flight, progressed after a 3-0 win at Tyler’s former club Peterborough United on Saturday.

Speaking after yesterday’s victory, Tyler had said: “I’m from Norwich and I would like Norwich. We’ll see what happens tomorrow and keep our fingers crossed.

“Everyone wants to play a big team away from home, but if we can get a team down here again, like you saw today the crowd were magnificent. Hopefully we can reward them again.

“You want a big club away from home but you saw the atmosphere here today. I don’t think anyone would like to come down here and play us here at the moment.”

The tie at Carrow Road is due to take place on the weekend starting Saturday, January 26.
