- Game to take place between 29 January and 1 February
- Winners of Town's replay at Reading to progress

Huddersfield Town or Reading will play at home to Sky Bet League 1 side Walsall in the 2015/16 Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round. 

The Terriers were represented by ball number 29 in the live televised draw, which was broadcast live on BBC1 just after 7.15pm on Monday.

The game will take place between 29 January and 1 February 2016.

Which club will host Walsall will be decided when the Terriers travel to Reading for the Emirates FA Cup Third Round replay on Tuesday 19 January after Saturday's 2-2 draw.

Recent memorable FA Cup clashes include the Fourth Round tie at Premier League Arsenal in January 2011, when Alan Lee’s second half equaliser gave Town hope of an upset before a late, late goal from midfielder Cesc Fabregas. 

The last time the Terriers got past the Fourth Round in the competition was in February 2008, when they were handed a Fifth Round tie at Chelsea. Although Michael Collins’ goal sent Town in level at the interval after a first half goal from Frank Lampard, further goals from Lampard and Salomon Kalou sent the hosts into the quarter final.

Huddersfield Town has won the FA Cup once in its history, defeating Preston North End 1-0 in the 1922 final thanks to a penalty from record appearance holder Billy Smith.
