FA Cup fourth round TV fixtures revealed with Kidderminster and Boreham Wood set for £110k payday but fans fume at picks

KIDDERMINSTER and Boreham Wood are set for a £110,000 bumper payday after their FA Cup fourth round games were picked for TV.

The magic of the FA Cup was back in full force in the third round, with some big shocks.

National League North side Kidderminster beat Championship Reading, while Boreham Wood stunned AFC Wimbledon.

Their respective rewards are that Kidderminster will host West Ham on Saturday, February 5 with a 5pm kick-off live on BBC.

Meanwhile Boreham Wood will travel to take on Bournemouth on Sunday, February 6 with a 6.30pm kick-off on ITV 4.

And while most football fans will be delighted that the non-league teams will get their TV time, some of the other ties picked haven't gone down well.

Many fans were fuming that Manchester United versus Middlesbrough was chosen, with Ian Streeter jokingly writing 'Man Utd, surely not' on Twitter.

And on the Red Devils, Stuart Spreadbridge posted: "Unbelievable every game every round every year they televise it."
