Meanwhile, Forest v United will be broadcast live on BBC One from The City Ground, where our all-time record goalscorer Wayne Rooney will be part of the TV studio line-up.

On Monday evening, the fifth round kicked off with Championship side Coventry City advancing to the last eight for the first time since 2009, following a 5-0 victory over sixth-tier Maidstone United, who were the lowest-ranked team left in the tournament.

Three teams were confirmed on Tuesday night, with Championship leaders Leicester City upsetting Bournemouth, Manchester City beating Luton Town 6-2 and Newcastle United edging past Blackburn Rovers via a penalty shootout.
