The Albion will play Sunderland in the FA Cup 6th round at the Amex should they beat Hull City in their 5th round tie tomorrow evening (Monday 17 February).
Sunderland, managed by former Albion boss Gus Poyet, who was sacked by the Seagulls last June, beat Southampton 1-0 in their 5th round clash.
A tie against the Wearside club could also mean an early return to the Amex for Liam Bridcutt. He was signed by Poyet last month.
If the Seagulls triumph, the match against Sunderland would be only the third appearance by Albion in the quarter finals. It would be the first time that the club had reached the quarter finals since 1986.
