Southend United boss Phil Brown is delighted to have drawn former club Hull City in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup.

Southend saw off Championship Millwall 4-1 to set up the tie.

Brown told the Yorkshire Post: “I am delighted with the draw.

“Regardless of my personal history or anything like that, this is an opportunity for my lads to take on a Premier League team. Our performance, from 1-11, against Millwall showed how much they wanted to be in the fourth round.

“We would love to see the game be picked for TV. To me, it is the sort of tie that the FA Cup is all about. A Premier League club coming to an old stadium, which for us recently has been a bit of a fortress.”
