We Meet Again (Sort Of).........

A look back at some FA Cup Fourth Round memories

24 January 2020

For much of the past 30 years, the FA Cup Fourth Round day has not been one that has interested Brentford. Between 1989, when we reached the last eight, and 2003, Brentford played only one Fourth Round tie - an unlucky defeat to Charlton Athletic in 1996. But since that defeat to Burnely in 2003, there have been some memorable FA Cup Fourth Round days.

The Bees beat Hartlepool United in 2005 before bowing out to Southampton in a replay and recorded a famous win over top-flight Sunderland a year later. DJ Campbell scored both goals as The Bees won 2-1. But Campbell departed days later and The Bees lost to Charlton, again, in the last 16 at The Valley.

There have been two Fourth Round losses to Chelsea in recent years. Brentford took the elad twice at Griffin Park in 2013 before being pegged back and losing the replay. The 2017 game was a more convincing win for The Blue at Stamford Bridge. And last year, Vanarama National League Barnet were beaten in a Fourth Round replay after the first tie ended 3-3. Have a look at some memorable Fourth Round games below.

The last remaining tickets for the tie are still on sale. More information can be seen here.
