Norwich City will host Birmingham City in the FA Youth Cup quarter-finals.

The Blues won 3-1 at Bury on Friday night to seal their progress, with the match expected to be played at Carrow Road.

Last-eight ties need to be played by Saturday, March 3 and both teams know that a two-legged semi-final against Fulham or Chelsea awaits, with the first leg at home.

City's youngsters have played all of their games at Carrow Road so far, beating Barnsley 4-1 and Derby County 4-2 in extra-time before another dramatic tie in the fifth round, beating Newcastle 4-3 in extra-time.

Birmingham won 2-1 at Bristol City and then 1-0 at home against Sheffield United in the fourth round, before their success at Bury.

The Blues have never won the trophy, making the final once, being beaten 1-0 by Sunderland in 1967. The Canaries won the prestigious competition in 1983 and 2013 and have reached the sixth round for the third time in six seasons.
