SOUTHEND United have been handed a mouth-watering incentive to win their FA Cup replay against Brentford by drawing a home tie against Chelsea in the fourth round.

Blues came from two goals down to draw 2-2 with the Bees at Roots Hall on Saturday thanks to a Barry Corr brace.

The replay at Griffin Park is scheduled for next week with the winners hosting the Premier Division giants over the weekend of January 26 and 27.

Blues faced Chelsea in the third round four years ago when Peter Clarke's late goal secured a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge, before Southend lost 4-1 in the replay at Roots Hall.

Chelsea booked their place in the fourth round in comfortably style with a 5-1 victory over Southampton at St Mary's.
