Andrew Crofts wants a big reward for sending Albion through to the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The matchwinner against Reading and ex-Premier League midfielder with Norwich has his sights set on a plum tie home or away in tomorrow's draw.

Former Chelsea trainee Crofts told The Argus: "My family are big LIverpool fans, so Liverpool away or something like that, or bring a big team here would be great, any of the big guns.

"I would love to play Chelsea here or at Stamford Bridge. Any big clubs coming here or going there would be great. That's what the FA Cup is about.

"We put in a really good performance today and hopefully we'll get a good tie. If not we'll hopefully get through to the next around. It's all about on the day.

"We're looking forward to the draw tomorrow but most importantly now we have got Birmingham on Saturday (at home) and we're gearing to that."

Albion have reached the fourth round for the fifth year in a row and will be bidding to make it through to the last 16 for the third time in four years.

The lost 6-1 at Liverpool in the fifth round two seasons ago, before Crofts rejoined them from Norwich.

Bring your life jacket as its dodgy swimming near the PALACE pier in this monsoon weather! Sorry! it used to be called the PALACE Pier but it's now called BRIGHTON Pier - presumably because "PALACE" sounded too tacky!!! Anyway if Brighton are drawn against Palace - there is every chance Palace will once again be all at sea when hit by the rampant SEAGULLS!

I hope we get any of the premier league clubs then we may get to see more than 10 seconds of highlights on ITV even the whole game live if we give ITV a bung!!
Don't no what the TV companies have against us but they don't seem to like showing much.
As I side note I see Portugal footballer Eusebio past away, for those to young to remember him he was or has got have been one of greatest footballers ever to grace the game of football.

I was talking about a big club on the south coast, like Southampton.
