Sit back and enjoy, it's FA Cup time, the stuff dreams are made of!!! 

7:43pm

Of course, there is also the small matter of a cash windfall for the winning club as well as a plum tie against Liverpool in round four. 

Tonight's winners receive £67,500 in prize money as well as a £144,000 broadcast fee for the televised clash against the Merseyside outfit. 

7:33pm

Meanwhile, striker Tokelo Rantie, who starts for the first time since the end of November, is looking forward to his FA Cup bow:

He told the Daily Echo: “I have watched the FA Cup before because I have been following English football for quite some time now.

“I think it is a great opportunity for us. We know that if we do well in this competition that a lot of people will see what we are capable of doing.

“If we win, we get the opportunity to play against Liverpool and anyone would want that opportunity. We just have to do what we are capable of doing.

“The FA Cup has good stature and has been there for a long time and it is an opportunity for players to showcase their talent.

“I believe every single manager would love to give his players the opportunity in these kind of cup games and it will also help players, who are not getting enough game-time, to show what they are capable of doing in this type of competition.

“I think it is good for the whole team and the opportunity is there for everyone.”

7:30pm

On-loan midfielder Andrew Surman knows all about FA Cup shocks having been involved in Norwich City's exit to Conference club Luton Town last season:

Ahead of tonight's clash, he told the Daily Echo: “It is always dangerous. I am sure everyone says it but teams from the lower leagues raise their game against the teams above them.

“If you are not on it, they will take you apart. You have to be careful. I found out first hand last season. Luton came to Norwich and played very well. We weren’t at it and they beat us 1-0.

“You have to be very careful but as long as we go into the game with the right mental attitude and carry on doing the things we do week in, week out in the league then we are positive about the game.

“I haven’t got that far in the competition. There are probably not great memories for me but, hopefully, we can turn that round.”

7:26pm

The crowd at Dean Court were just treated to a selection of goals which caused FA Cup shocks... 

7:25pm

The last time Cherries made it to the fourth round was in 2005 when they beat Forest Green Rovers, Carlisle United and Chester City to earn a trip to Burnley or Liverpool. 

However, hopes of a trip to Anfield went up in smoke when Burnley shocked the Merseyside giants with a 1-0 victory at Turf Moor. Cherries lost 2-0 to the Clarets in the next round.

7:22pm

The Brewers arrive at Dean Court on the back of an 11-match unbeaten run in all competitions which dates back to November 16.

Gary Rowett’s men have conceded just four goals in that spell and secured their third-round spot with victories over Hereford United and promotion rivals Fleetwood Town in the FA Cup. 

7:21pm

Cherries will be seeking a fourth-round berth for the first time in nine years against a Burton outfit who are flying high in second spot in League Two. 

7:16pm

Meanwhile, Burton have made two changes to their starting XI from Saturday's 2-1 over Cheltenham.

Adam Buxton makes his Brewers debut after joining on loan from Wigan Athletic while midfielder Lee Bell returns to the line-up. 

Midfield duo Robbie Weir and Alex MacDonald drop to the bench. 

7:08pm

Summary of the team news for Cherries shows few surprises. 

Eddie Howe has made five changes.

In comes Ryan Allsop for his first start since October in place of the ineligible Lee Camp. 

Steve Cook returns at centre-half in place of Elliott Ward, while Marc Pugh replaces Ryan Fraser out wide.

Tokelo Rantie and Brett Pitman both start with Andrew Surman and Lewis Grabban joining Ward and Fraser on the bench. 

Shwan Jalal is the substitute keeper.
