West Ham United v Bolton Wanderers
Two Premiership high-flyers seek to further their
European ambitions as they vie for an FA Cup quarter-final place at the Boleyn Ground (kick-off 8.05).
Following the 0-0 stalemate last month and a league meeting on Saturday, this fifth-round replay will be the third clash between the two teams in under a month. Bolton dumped the Londoners out of the Carling Cup earlier in the season, so Alan Pardew 's men will be aiming to return the favour.
Quality youngsters such as Nigel Reo-Coker and Anton Ferdinand played a vital part in the Hammers equalling a club record of seven straight wins recently, but Sam Allardyce 's Trotters proved their mettle by defeating holders Arsenal in round four.
