Albion have been handed a chance to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup for only the second time in their history.

They visit Millwall in the quarter-finals next month for a place at Wembley.

It will be the third round in succession that Chris Hughton's side have faced Championship opposition after beating West Brom in a replay in round four in the West Midlands and Derby County in the fifth round at the Amex on Saturday.

The tie will be particularly poignant for Jiri Skalak.

The Czech winger joined Millwall from Albion last summer and made the last of his 19 appearances for them so far this season as a late substitute in the fourth round win at home to Everton.

Neil Harris's side knocked out Hull at The Den in round three and won 1-0 at AFC Wimbledon in the fifth round.

They are in a relegation fight in the Championship, two points and two places above the drop zone, but are notoriously difficult opponents in front of their own fervent fans.

Albion avoided Manchester City and Manchester United, as well as Premier League rivals Wolves, Watford and Crystal Palace.

Millwall are one of two Championship teams left in the competition in which the Seagulls were runners-up in 1983, together with Swansea.

The tie will be played between March 15 and 18. Albion have important matches either side of it in their battle for Premier League survival away to Crystal Palace and then at home to Southampton following an international break.

Albion have been drawn against Millwall only once previously in the FA Cup.

That was back in 1956-57, when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home and lost the replay 3-1 two days later.

They are unbeaten on their last six trips to South London, including a 0-0 draw on their last visit in March 2015.

Full draw: Swansea v Manchester City, Watford v Crystal Palace, Wolves v Manchester United, Millwall v ALBION.
