With the the top flight teams on these shores entering the FA Cup fray in the third round, the fourth round should see some more heavyweight ties emerge.
Indeed, while many will point to the fact that bigger teams battling each other is not really what the FA Cup - in its purest sense at least - is about.
Still, while that is true to a certain extent, more headline-grabbing ties can only bring more attention to the oldest cup competition in the world and one that has perhaps lost its allure in recent years. Alongside some potential upsets in the making, it will be fascinating to see how everything unfolds.
