With Arsenal taking victory over Sutton United in Monday’s FA Cup battle at Gander Green Lane, our quarter final tie with fellow non league side Lincoln City has now been set.

Following discussions between both clubs and the Football Association, with the obligatory talks with the television companies, the date of March 11 has been decided upon.

We therefore host Lincoln at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday March 11 with the game carrying a 5.30pm kick off for live screening by BT Sport.

Following rule changes to the competition this year, there are no replays from the quarter final stage onwards so the fixture will be subject to extra time and penalties should they be needed to identify a winner on the night.

Hopefully that won’t be the case (!) but as a result of this the Premier League tie with Leicester City originally set for the same day has now been postponed and will be re-arranged in due course.
