Saints are set to take their FA Cup earnings this season to almost £1m after Sky Sports took the decision to televise their fourth round replay with Millwall next week.

It's the second time Saints will have appeared live on TV in the Cup this season after the BBC screened their 4-0 demolition of Spurs.

Every game shown live in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth rounds of the competition is worth £265,000 to each of the sides.

When you take into account the split gate receipts from the three matches and the fact Saints stand to make a minimum of £50,000 in prize money, it adds up to a considerable sum.

The decision for the game to be shown live on Sky Sports 2 has also meant a change of date with the clash being moved back a day to Wednesday, February 5, with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Saints have been given 4,000 tickets for the match, which go on sale to season ticket holders today, to members on January 30 and on general sale on February 1. No tickets will be on sale on the day of the game.

Whoever wins through the high pressure tie, which has come as a result of the 1-1 draw at St Mary's last Saturday, will face Norwich at home in the next round on February 15.

Canaries boss Nigel Worthington, whose side needed a last-minute goal to defeat non-leaguers Dagenham & Redbridge at Carrow Road at the weekend, commented: "It's a draw which gives us a chance of reaching the last eight.

"The fact they have got to play each other again means they have got another fixture to fit in before they play us - and it gives us a chance to watch the replay and do a little homework.

"Obviously you're always looking for a home draw but we'll definitely be up for it whoever we face.

"It's game on as far as we are concerned."
