Chelsea face giant-killers Barnsley

Barnsley manager Simon Davey believes facing Chelsea at home in the FA Cup quarter-finals is a 'good reward' for beating Liverpool on Saturday.

The Tykes beat Liverpool 2-1 courtesy of Brian Howard's injury-time strike in a surprise result at Anfield and now take on the Cup holders at Oakwell after Avram Grant's Chelsea knocked out Huddersfield in the last 16.

Davey said: 'It's a fantastic draw. To win at Anfield on Saturday and then pit our wits against another fantastic club with world class players - it will be another great occasion for everybody concerned.

'In the quarter-finals there are seven other clubs left and they are all going to be tricky matches, so we're not wishing we drew a lower league club.

'What would have been worse would have been a Championship club away from home.

'But we've avoided that and a home draw is perfect and the fact that it's Chelsea just makes it more exciting.

'We've got a fantastic home record at the moment and hopefully we can continue it and get into the semi-finals.'

But Davey is well aware of the big-name match-winners Chelsea possess.

'I think there's a few - Frank Lampard, John Terry, Joe Cole, there are endless names from Chelsea that are going to give us nightmares,' he said.

Meanwhile, Sir Alex Ferguson was resigned to his fate after Manchester United were once again paired with a Premier League side.

United will face Portsmouth at home in the quarter-finals after overcoming Aston Villa, Tottenham and Arsenal to reach the last eight of the competition. United also played six top-flight sides in enroute to last season's FA Cup final, including Portsmouth.

The United manager said: 'It's a home draw, so it doesn't matter who you get. But it's typical that we have another Premier League team.

'The good thing about the FA Cup, though, is that the opposition bring an increased number of supporters, which makes for a great atmosphere.

'We've had two great home ties against Spurs and Arsenal in the previous rounds, and hopefully we'll have another one against Portsmouth.'

At least one side from outside the top flight will be in the semi-finals after Bristol Rovers were drawn at home to West Brom having knocked out Southampton in the fifth round.

Sheffield United or Middlesbrough will host Cardiff in the remaining match.

The ties will be played on the weekend of March 8 and 9.
