Mark Beard's under-18s will travel to Arsenal in the fifth round of the FA Youth Cup. The tie will be on Thursday 6th February, with kick-off 7pm.

It will take place at Meadow Park, home of Boreham Wood FC, after Albion were impressive 2-0 winners away to Derby County at Pride Park in the last round.

Before that, a brace from Stefan Vukoje and a decisive strike from Lorent Tolaj helped Beard's men defeat Leicester City 3-2 at The People's Pension Stadium in December.

The Seagulls reached the fifth round stage in last year's competition before losing out to Everton at Goodison Park.
