Date confirmed for quarter-final tie


A date and time has been set for Southampton's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final tie with Championship side AFC Bournemouth next month, which will be broadcast live by BT Sport.

Having booked a place in the final eight with a 2-0 success over Wolves, Saints now face the Cherries at Vitality Stadium on Saturday 20th March, 12:15pm GMT, with a semi-final spot up for grabs.

Bournemouth reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the first time in 64 years with victory at Premier League Burnley in the previous round.

Saints' originally scheduled Premier League meeting with Tottenham Hotspur, which was due to take place on that same day, will be moved to another date.
