Last updated : 10 January 2005 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers will face Lancashire neighbours Oldham Athletic in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

The last round of the competition saw Bolton overcome a potentially difficult away tie with Championship high fliers Ipswich Town. Goals from Henrik Pedersen (2) and Stelios Giannakopoulos gave the Trotters a 3-1 win and booked them a place in the next round.

Giantkillers Oldham on the other hand managed to defy the odds and knock out Manchester City thanks to a goal coming from young striker Scott Vernon.
