Brighton have been drawn away to Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

The tie - which will be decided on the day - will take place on the weekend of March 17, which means Brighton's Premier League game at Manchester City has been postponed.

Albion reached the last eight with a 3-1 victory at home to Coventry this afternoon. Debutant Jurgen Locadia, Connor Goldson and Leonardo Ulloa scored as Brighton reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 1986.

The other quarter-final ties will be Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea v Rochdale or Tottenham; Leicester v Chelsea; and Wigan or Manchester City v Southampton.
