PALACE will face Hartlepool United in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

Patrick Vieira's side will take on Hartlepool at Selhurst Park on the weekend of February 5.

Specific dates and potential broadcast details will be confirmed in the future.

The last time the two sides played against each other was in a League Cup tie in 2004. Dougie Freedman and Tom Soares were the scorers for Palace that day in a 2-1 win.

Hartlepool are currently 16th in League Two.

Palace reached the fourth round after a 2-1 victory over Millwall, when Dutchman Michael Olise helped Vieira's side to a brilliant second-half comeback.

The FA Cup is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year, and Palace was one of the founding teams in 1871.
