Arsenal and Wigan Athletic met in the Premier League at the end of last season

Steve Bruce will face another of his old clubs after Hull City were drawn against Sheffield United in the Semi-Final of The FA Cup.

Bruce's side beat Sunderland 3-0 on Sunday afternoon and he immediately watched the draw from Wembley where the Tigers were paired with the Blades.

"Sheffield United gave me my chance in management a long, long time ago," said the Hull boss.

"I'm delighted for everyone. I've seen the scenes at Bramall Lane today and now we've got a big Yorkshire derby to look forward to at Wembley, which will be a magnificent occasion for everyone."

Sheffield United manager Nigel Clough was a losing finalist at Wembley in the 1991 FA Cup Final as a player with Nottingham Forest. 

Clough will be looking to take his side all the way after seeing off yet another side from a higher division. They sent Charlton Athletic out winning 2-0 at Bramall Lane.

Arsenal will face Wigan Athletic as they bid to end their nine-year wait for silverware.

The Gunners most recent trophy came in 2005, when they won The FA Cup, and they booked their place in the last four after beatining Everton 4-1 on Saturday.

Latics will not release their grip on The Cup easily, though, after seeing off last season's Finalists Manchester City 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium.

1 Hull City v Sheffield United
